PSCI 417 - International Development

(3cr) International development is one of the basic issues in international politics. Every country is in one way or another developing. It seems that the standard for development is set by those countries with the most influence in international politics. However, even those states are constantly trying to improve. Since the standard is set by the Western states, they determine what the basic issues are for development. The question is whether those standards make sense for other countries as well. It often means that development is defined in terms of economics and politics. There are many other issues one could look at to determine the level of development. Prerequisites: PSCI 100  or PSCI 101  or permission of instructor.
