Welcome to the beginning of the journey...
Welcome to the Humanitarian Principles and Practice (HPP), the core module for the MSc Humanitarian Action at SOAS, University of London.
This is the core module for the MSc International Development. It draws on the long-standing success of our on-campus MSc Development Studies degree.
The Political economy and Sociology of Development equips students with a thorough theoretical understanding of development studies, drawing on the key disciplines of sociology and economics.
The module is founded on the history of thought on development
studies, identifying and critiquing the intellectual journey,
trends, the associated policies and the dominance of the
neoliberal agenda in development policy and practice.
