Development Studies

Our interdisciplinary Development Studies programme looks at the socio-political and economic challenges and prospects of the ‘Global South’ since decolonization, as well as the global lessons to be learned from the region’s radical contemporary transformation.

Focusing on the impact of economic underdevelopment on socio-political and environmental sustainability, it includes field defining series such as Rethinking International Development and Politics, Economics, and Inclusive Development as well as unique series such as Gender, Development and Social Change, Palgrave Studies on Children and Development and Palgrave Studies in Disability and International Development that expand on the traditional borders of the field.
