Political Science and Development Studies
Political science seeks to make sense of the fundamentals of political life. Power, influence and other key political concepts are deployed to explore the role of the state and its relation to social structures and individual lives. Modern political science addresses questions of governance from a range of perspectives that vary in terms of their empirical focus, theoretical influence and methodology.
Development studies analyses political, economic and social processes of change from a global perspective and studies the prerequisites for sustainable development within different policy areas in an unequal world.
