International Development Cooperation(IDC)

For many developing economies, development assistance plays a significant role. Who decides what resources are given or lent, to which countries and under what conditions? What types of aid are effective? What are the post-emergency priorities in countries suffering from the effects of human or natural disasters and how can international aid work best in such conditions?

The Department of International Development Cooperation
(IDC) was established in 2008 as the first of its kind in Korea to promote interdisciplinary post-graduate teaching and research on processes of social, political and economic development and change. The course is dedicated to deepening the understanding of development and underdevelopment, complex modes of development assistance in the global context, political and socioeconomic systems in developing world, and project management and consulting skills.

The teaching staff have considerable experience in living and working in the developing world as well as international organizations, and most have engaged in policy-relevant research and consultancy work with international development agencies or consulting firms. Students upon graduation have successfully found employment in a wide variety of government, academic and private sector organizations.
