Are you interested in development policies and paradigms? Do you wonder what makes development interventions fail or succeed? Are you interested in the role of international actors in shaping actors, processes and policies in the global south?
Or do you have a particular interest in the Monitoring and Evaluation of development policies, programmes and projects? And are you looking to sharpen your understanding of enabling and constraining factors of development success or failure?
In the Advanced Master of Development Evaluation and Management at the University of Antwerp’s Institute of Development Policy (IOB) you’ll assess the strengths and weaknesses of prevailing development paradigms and gain insights on different actors and institutions, from the local to the international level. You will be equipped with multidisciplinary analytical tools that will enable you to confidently conduct academic research on development policies and programmes using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods. Electives offered in this programme address some of the most pressing issues in contemporary development practice, including natural resources, migration, gender and development, land access and tenure, climate finance and the ‘greening’ of aid, and access to public goods and services.
