Notable academics[edit]

I think it might be useful if this section gave details of the affiliation of these people. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.42.141.93 (talk) 14:10, 3 January 2008 (UTC)


Human security[edit]

Given the important relationship between development studies and human security and the emergence of human security in international discourse, I felt this article would benefit from a brief paragraph on the relationship between the two. I have attempted to demonstrate how human security brings a fresh approach to development issues and how it defines development and security as inseperable issues.

Debates[edit]

Under this heading LEDCs, LDCs and OECD should be spelled out. Persons viewing the Development studies article may not have encountered these specialty terms before.

References[edit]

I could not find reference 5 on Amazon.com It would be appreciated if the author could provide the ISBN.

Marginalization of Academic Periphery[edit]

The list headed `Academic Departments' omits many universities with important Development Studies programmes that are located peripherally to Northern centres, e.g., several universites in New Zealand. Thus, the page reflects a centrist (Northcentric) ideology that can be accused of being geographically and culturally biased and hegemonist, or neocolonialist.
