Generell informasjon

This course will introduce the students to development theory and on-going debates regarding the relationship between religion and development. Perspectives will be drawn from religious studies, development studies, international relations and the study of civil society and faith-based organisations. Both the role of religion in development and more specifically the role of religion in development aid will be addressed. The course will enable the students to better understand the role of religion in so-called developing countries and in international development cooperation.
Students who are not enrolled in the Master Programme Religion, Society and Global Issues, should have equivalent academic background.
