This course explores development cooperation as an important dimension of international relations, particularly relations between developing and developed countries. Diplomatic training courses rarely include an introduction to and training in international development cooperation, including humanitarian aid, thus hampering diplomats’ ability to successfully negotiate development-related issues. The course looks at various types of development cooperation at national, regional and global levels. Development issues are examined from the perspectives of both provider and partner countries. Theory and analysis are supported with examples and illustrations from the professional experience of the course authors.
Application deadline: 20 September 2018
