Dr Barbara Bompani explains why this programme is offered at the University of Edinburgh.
We are living in a complex, uncertain and rapidly changing world, facing challenges such as climate change, food insecurity, economic downturn, new political movements and poverty.
These challenges have been and will continue to be most keenly felt in Africa.
Unfortunately, international development has often not brought about the changes hoped for.
This is an exciting time for the subject of international development at the University of Edinburgh. We are constantly building new ways of harnessing and enhancing our development expertise.
This is an exciting time for the subject of international development at the University of Edinburgh.

The University of Edinburgh’s great strength is the quality of its internationally-focused teaching and research across all three of its Colleges.
We engage with an enormous range of topics, issues and research problems, from religion to sleeping sickness, from the history of colonial science to the politics of the Africa state, from the anthropology of health and illness to the technologies of bioenergy, and more.
