Advanced Development Economics

This course is designed for students who have completed the first Development Economics graduate course in this department. It builds on the first course by :

  • providing a wider set of readings, with less of a South African focus (e.g. Sen's approach to poverty)
  • dealing with selected, more focused issues in development research (e.g. an institutional perspective on economic development)
  • further developing technical skills for empirical development research

The desired outcomes from this course are

  • a deepened understanding of the development process and different approaches to development
  • an improved ability to read and interpret advanced readings in development economics
  • developing empirical research skills in the development field.

Course instructor: Servaas van der Berg
