POLS 4210 - Politics of Development

This course explores the political, economic, and social challenges of Third World development. It covers a wide range of contemporary issues affecting developing countries, and focuses especially on policies aimed at reducing poverty and underdevelopment. In a world where 840 million people are malnourished, where nearly 1.3 billion people live on less than a dollar per day, and where dozens of countries constitute ‘failed states,’ the development challenges faced by the Third World are unquestionably one of the most important concerns of our time.

Prerequisite: POLS 1101 or POLS 1101H, and POLS 2401 or POLS 2401H (POLS 2401 can be taken as a Corequisite as well)
