Why Study International Development?

Why Study International Development?.

My program and what I’ve invested 3 years (so far) of my life in learning about. It’s refreshing to see and hear the importance of international development defined and outlined so well from someone outside of my class.

One response

  1. I thought it was strange that the entire purpose of international development was couched within the context of violence prevention. In contradistinction it made complete sense to me that your previous post on sustainable development focused on the human development index. Shouldn’t this index be a key component of international development as well?

    Also the article claimed that when nation is not governed by its citizens or by democracy it is at risk of violence. Are democracies always really the right answer? And does having a democracy really make a nation less likely to experience intra or extra border violence?
