Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open. Please remember to maintain social distancing when on university premises. We have chosen to close all the group rooms in the library to reduce the risk of infection.

Development Studies

The uneven distribution of power and economic resources is an important issue in an increasingly globalised world.

The relations between rich and poor nations are a central part of the subject. What are these relations like and why are they as they are? How do they affect global and local development in the short and long term? Development Studies examines issues of global development from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Research in Development Studies takes place in the research area of Environmental Studies, one of the university’s five research areas for doctoral studies.
