This seminar explores the interaction between law and socio-economic development (with some emphasis on international law). The seminar engages the theoretical underpinnings of the law and development discourse as well as practical aspects of the development enterprise. It explores the meaning and the historical ascendance of the development concept; its continued metamorphosis into good governance and other related concepts; and the differing approaches to effecting development and the place of law there in. While the seminar includes consideration of the roles of international organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in fostering development, students will also be introduced to some of the alternatives to the approaches of these international institutions that scholars, activists, grassroots movements and civil society organizations have advocated in recent times.


Students are encouraged to have taken or be taking International Law 457.3. Students with credit for LAW 865 will not receive credit for this course.
