The Evolution of Development Thinking
On December 6th 2019 a one day conference titled The Evolution of Development Thinking will take place at Palais des Nations, Headquarter of the United Nations Organizations in Geneva. This event is part of a Master level course on development at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.
This Master level course at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland is addressing some central questions of development thinking organized in two blocks. The first block is focused on the participants researching and presenting cases of development programs that are representative of different streams in development theory. These growth theories, modernization theory, dependency theories, the Washington and post-Washington consensus and the capabilities approach. The second block is then taking place in Geneva at the Palais des Nations, the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva and is focused on meeting and interacting with development practitioners.
For the one day conference on 6th of December in Geneva we do have a few places for guests so please get in touch with the Swiss Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network if you are interested in joining.
