Master in Development Studies and International Cooperation, Universidad de Cantabria,  2010.

Development is understood as an arena of institutions, policies and actors mobilized by the social, economic and political realities of structural global inequality. Measures to promote development can be an expression of political solidarity with the marginalized and disenfranchised masses of humanity, but can also comprise mechanisms by which global asymmetries of wealth and power are maintained.
