A4ID Law and Development Training Programme 2019: Module 1

Sun 20 January

Introduction to International Development

Evolution of the concept and contextualisation

Michael Woolcock, World Bank

The first session of the programme puts international development into context, outlining the emergence of ‘development’ and the political and economic factors driving, and slowing, progress.

The session will examine the persistence of global poverty and inequality within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals, and consider the role of the law and legal institutions in supporting international development efforts.

Actors and processes, and the role of lawyers

Michael Woolcock, World Bank

This session examines the key actors in development and how they work in practice. It also explores how the rule of law underpins good governance and development, and how processes of law reform differ across country contexts and different areas of law.

The speaker will also discuss how institutional systems be strengthened to deliver on policy pronouncements, and how communities can develop their capacity to get equitable justice from the legal rule system they live under.
