For us, in addition to quality, your peace of mind comes first.Presentation and ObjectivesThe objective of the Master's Degree in International Cooperation and Management of Public Policies, Programs and Development Projects is to satisfy the demand for technical experts in international cooperation, caused by the existence of a growing number of actors that contribute resources in this field. Even in a recessive context such as the current one, developed countries disburse significant resources as Official Development Assistance (ODA), which is channeled through various actors such as multilateral organizations, NGDOs, state, regional and local cooperation agencies or various ministerial dependencies. On the other hand, an increasing number of developing countries are strongly promoting South-South Cooperation policies, this being one of the most transformative events in the current aid system. Among these actors of South-South Cooperation, Latin American countries are playing a crucial role, since they have become international benchmarks in this matter, through the effort to systematize their practices and to re-conceptualize the cooperation they are carrying out. . Finally, the commitment of different organizations to the execution of cooperation programs also grows in the business sphere, in those countries where they are installed, promoting Corporate Social Responsibility policies that try to align with the development agenda.
The Master's Degree in International Cooperation and Management of Public Policies, Programs and Development Projects responds to this need to train experts capable of carrying out cooperation interventions that offer Development Results and who know how to respond effectively and innovatively to the demands posed by the current cooperation system. In this sense, it is necessary to point out that the assumption of international commitments poses important challenges for the design of strategies and the execution of programs that are widely covered in the teachings of this Master. We refer to the Millennium Development Goals (2000), and the Paris Declaration for aid effectiveness (2005), as well as the emergence of new development approaches such as the one based on Human Rights or the importance that new ones are gaining. management tools such as budget support.
Since the celebration of the Busan High-Level Forum in 2011, the cooperation system has undergone a profound transformation, expanding its scope of action to form a Global Partnership for Development that, once again, requires a deep knowledge of the matters dealt with. in this program.
The Master's Degree in International Cooperation and Management of Public Policies, Programs and Development Projects pursues 2 objectives:To make known in depth the principles, functioning and logic of the international aid system, its actors, policies and instruments. From this formation, a critical reflection is proposed, and the impulse of interventions that positively affect the eradication of the structures that generate and perpetuate poverty.
Train the student in the identification, formulation, execution, monitoring and evaluation of development interventions. In this way, training is assured both in terms of projects carried out by cooperation agencies and agencies, applying the Human Rights-based Approach to the Logical Framework and Approach (HRBA), as well as to the public programs and policies implemented by the governments of developing countries with resources from cooperation.ProgramFundamentals of the international cooperation system
