Waarom aan de Erasmus University Rotterdam?
major Agrarian, Food and Environmental Studies
An interdisciplinary approach to understanding and confronting the impacts of global capitalist development on agrarian structures and environmental systems.
Can we feed the world and achieve economic development while conserving ecosystems and improving the livelihoods of peasants and the rural poor? How do we understand and tackle the interlinked agrarian and environmental crises? What types of policies create sustainable development that guarantees justice, equality and autonomy for poor and marginalized communities? The AFES Major focuses on the social, political and economic dynamics of rural and agrarian change and environmental degradation.
major Economics of Development
Learn to tackle many of the key issues countries face in respect of economic development and economic policy.
Many developing countries suffer from slow economic growth, unequal distribution of income and ineffective government services. This major brings out the fundamental linkages between economic growth and human development.
major Governance and Development Policy
Get insights on how to understand and influence governance processes at local and national levels.
Globalization, decentralization and new forms of public-private sector cooperation have changed the ways in which people, organisations and territories are governed. This major addresses the processes and problems of governance, policy and local economic development, and how these work out in the everyday realities of people, with a bias towards the poor and vulnerable.
major Human Rights, Gender and Conflict Studies: Social Justice Perspectives
Reflect on issues relating to gender, human rights, conflict and social mobilization.
When power starts to shift dramatically, advancing social justice can prove a contradictory process. Justice, peace and equal rights may be promised, whilst simultaneously injustices, violence and exclusions continue to shape people's daily lives. This Major examines the processes through which diverse inequalities, exclusions and asymmetries persist and are reproduced in societies.
major Social Policy for Development
Are you concerned about poverty, inequality or social exclusion?
Analyze problems of social reproduction and social provisioning within a context of development and associated social and structural transformations. Learn how social policy can be used as a force for progressive transformation and for sustainable, equitable, gender-aware and socially-just development.
track Migration and Diversity track
Are you a strong advocate of ensuring migrants are treated fairly?
Equip yourself for working on current challenges around migration issues and how to manage them. Develop professional skills for analysing and responding to situations, going beyond the myths and over-generalizations that are commonplace in daily discussion.
