Development pathway

Development Geography examines patterns and situations of human well-being in developing societies, with a focus on an integrated understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality across time and space.

Development continues to be one of the great challenges of our time and many have critiqued its processes. We ask how approaches to development might be re-imagined to achieve more just and sustainable outcomes.

Subjects in the Development Geography Pathway explore development in practice, critical geographies of development, social and cultural change and difference, and the political ecology of resources and environment.
