Teaching Development Economics

Welcome to the TRUE wiki for development economics. This site is led by Peter Smith at the University of Southampton.

The aim of the project is to establish a repository of material that can be accessed and shared by academics teaching development economics, particularly at intermediate/advanced undergraduate level.  This could include lecture notes and handouts, slide presentations, suggested reading lists, problems and solutions, case studies, ideas for discussion seminars, simulations, etc.

The basic idea behind the TRUE project is to provide a resource to help lecturers to develop and refine courses in a number of subject areas that are commonly offered as undergraduate options.

We hope that the site will also develop into a useful forum for exchanging ideas, comments and suggestions relating to teaching materials in this subject area.

If this sounds of interest, and especially if you have teaching materials that you would be willing to share, please get in touch with me at
