Presentación

The International Development Department is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to undertake the MSc in Governance and State-building, followed by a six-month internship at IDD and six months with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation in London with a full scholarship. Applicants must have the equivalent of a first class UK bachelors degree and be African nationals domiciled (or permanent residents) in an African country. Preference will be given to scholarship candidates living in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This programme explores the issues of governance, state-building and development from an interdisciplinary standpoint, combining the theoretical rigour of political science and the practical experience of development. The good governance agenda that has emerged occurs now increasingly alongside the current debate on state-building, which encompasses issues such as accountability and transparency, corruption, conflict, political settlement, human rights, participation, access to justice, and democratisation.

Governance and state-building are of particular interest to governments, non-governmental organisations and development agencies, as well as to a growing and vibrant academic community.

The entry requirements consist of:

1st Class Honours degree or equivalent from an approved university.
Adequate capacity in written and spoken English. For those whose first language is not English, evidence of this capacity is required. Applicants should reach at least level 6.5 in the IELTS. Please check the University website for more information on English language requirements.
Experience in economics and statistics, demonstrated through a good mark received for at least one course at undergraduate level.
Applicants must be African nationals domiciled (or permanent residents) in an African country. Preference will be given to scholarship candidates living in Sub-Saharan Africa.
