Centre for Global Development

Summer School 2014

‘Understanding Development: Interdisciplinary Perspectives’

23-26 June 2014, University of Leeds


If you want to change the world you need to understand it. This is particularly important in the field of International Development. That is why The Centre for Global Development run its 2014 Summer School with the theme ‘Understanding Development: Interdisciplinary Perspectives’. Participants took part in the exciting four-days programme that covered key development themes and looked at them from various disciplinary angles in order to learn about and discuss how different analytical lenses shape our way of seeing ‘the problem’ and ‘the solution’ to particular development issues.

Participants who came from 4 different continents took part in interactive lectures and workshops, taught by key experts in various fields of International Development, drawn from different Departments and Faculties at the University of Leeds. Via interactions with our staff/experts and your fellow students, they deepened capabilities and skills related to critical thinking and analysis, research, group work, and communication.
