Identification questions (3 questions out of 5 options, 20 points each) Identification questions require students to explain the significance of a given concept in at least two paragraphs. You will have to write three identifications out of five options. Identification questions are based on the key development concepts that we have discussed in the lectures between week 2 and week 6. These concepts include Modernization Theory, Dependency Theory, Neoliberalism, the Developmental State, Post-Development, Human Development, and Civil Society. You must write down in full sentences some central terms related to that identification.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
