Politics, Peace and Development - University of Bradford

What are the prospects for peace in the 21st century? Can we solve some of our most pressing global issues – such as climate change, rising inequality, geopolitical power struggles, or protracted violent conflicts? Can international collaboration on the sustainable development goals help bring about a fairer and safer world for all? Or might this be a more turbulent century than the last, marked by resurgent nationalism and an accelerating environmental crisis? We can’t predict the future, but through studying our contemporary situation and the various forces and events that have influenced it, we can think more clearly about what is happening and why, and about the kinds of changes that are needed or possible to bring about positive, peaceful change. This newly designed programme explores the contested and highly political nature of debate about contemporary global challenges and responses to them. You will learn theories of and strategies for international development, peacebuilding, poverty reduction, environmental sustainability and economic growth, but you will also examine the tensions between and contentions surrounding policy discourse and practice, interrogating the assumptions behind key terms like globalisation, poverty and sustainable development. The BA (Hons) Politics, Peace and Development combines a rigorous academic training in key concepts, theories and case-studies, alongside a structured process of professional development. We have designed this course around a set of professional competencies for work in national and local government, in international, national and local NGOs, or in advocacy, policy and research roles. **Rankings** Politics at Bradford is ranked 45th in the UK in The Complete University Guide University Subject Tables 2019 for its undergraduate courses.
