How will these resources help you?
These resources explore the causes of the development gap by looking at the deeper historical reasons for development in the West; how a country's location can hold them back from progress; the institutional exploitation of Africa’s natural resources and how poor countries are disproportionally affected by negative world events. They provide teachers with a comprehensive understanding of global inequality and the reasons for it.
