This unit explores key theories of development, including modernization theory, dependency theory, and postcolonial approaches to development. It deals in pragmatic and ethical terms with the work of a range of development actors, including NGOs, multi-lateral and bilateral aid agencies, and corporations. It also explores the role of people in developing countries, and ideas of participatory development. Extensive use is made of case studies from various parts of the world, ranging from places in which Australia has a direct interest such as Indonesia, to more distant impoverished regions in Sub- Saharan Africa, South America and South Asia.
