Dr. Jonathan Rushton, Royal Veterinary College

The London International Development Centre (LIDC) has the pleasure to invite Bloomsbury students to the second edition of a series of interdisciplinary seminars on key development issues, ‘Understanding Development’.

The seminars, delivered by prominent development experts from across Bloomsbury Colleges, will examine disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives in development, provide research training and raise key methodological debates, encourage students to use perspectives and methodologies from one discipline in another one, and underline key development debates within and across academic disciplines.

The seminar series is designed primarily for students of the International Development pathway and related pathways of the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre. The seminar is also open to other Bloomsbury PhD students interested in development, and Master’s students. 

The second session will look at how economics approaches international development: what are the key paradigms, research methods, debates, etc.
