Master in Governance and Development


The future of sustainable development is critically related to the promotion of better governance at the local, national, regional and international level. At once a cause and a consequence of governance failures, violent conflict is incompatible with sustainable development.

Central in this nexus between& development, governance conflict are processes of tate formation, state failure and state reconstruction. The study programme analyses governance problems and possible responses with due account of specific historical pathways of countries and the interaction between the national state level, local society level dynamics and the impact of global developments. The Masters programme in Governance and Development offers two tracks with specific objectives, courses and target audiences. The first track explores governance and development issues against the background of violent conflict and the challenge of post-conflict state reconstruction. The second track addresses governance and development challenges from the particular perspective of local institutions and poverty reduction.
