Description:

Our course provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and training in the analysis of emerging economies. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers with a particular focus on national development strategies, economic and political institutions, and the political processes that influence economic reforms. We are based at King’s Department of International Development, which enables us to draw on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities as well as King’s Global Institutes.

The course critically assesses economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. Our main focus is examining the strategies that emerging economies have adopted to promote development. This includes asking how sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. To answer this last question, we investigate how emerging economies deal with the development and diffusion of technology, manage trade and financial flows, balance the role of the state and the market, and tackle problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.
