Centre of Development Studies Lecture Series

'Globalisation and the Nordic development model'

Prof Ove Kaj Pedersen,
Thursday 9th March 3.30pm-5pm
Room SG1

Prof Ove Kaj Pedersen is Professor at the Copenhagen
Business School. He has written extensively on a wide
array of subjects, including books and articles on the
Nordic development model. His lecture will analyse the
origins of the Nordic model and the way in which it is
evolving in the face of the challenges of globalisation.
His lecture will be exceptionally useful for students in
CDS in relation to their understanding of the role of
state and market in development.


We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan

Congratulations to PhD student Nungari Mwangi who was awarded the 2016 Andrew E Rice Award from the Society for International development!
