The aim of the department is to challenge classical and mainstream approaches to ‘development’ and to produce new transdisciplinary perspectives, theoretical concepts and methodological approaches to ‘development’ and global inequalities that go beyond disciplinary boundaries and a simple North-South divide. The complex subject ‘development’ is approached by integrating political, historical, economic, social, feminist and cultural perspectives that allow the analysis of inequalities, multifaceted processes of social change and transformation, and power relations on a global, regional and local level.
