This course analyses the multi-faceted meaning, conceptual dimensions, and common measurements of poverty, inequality and human development, and examines the link among them in an overarching context of economic growth and development of developing countries. Using theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence, students are engaged in discussions on the effectiveness of programs and policies used by governments and development institutions to alleviate poverty and inequality and enhance human development. Students are encouraged to seek innovative ways that lead to transformative changes in order to improve human well-being in the developing world.
