The course offers an overview of the most influential development theories, their background, concepts, and implications. It starts with the classical theories of 1950s and 60s (modernization, dependency theory), followed by the neo-classical and world-system theory. In the second part of the course, recent approaches, including critical perspectives coming from the post-development and post-colonial sociology will be discussed.

Given the current situation, this course will probably be given digitally. Please get in touch with the lecturer as soon as possible and, where applicable, register in E-Learning and CampusOnline.
