International development or global development is a wide concept concerning the level of development on an international scale. It is the basis for international classifications such as developed country, developing country and least developed country. There are, however, many schools of thought and conventions regarding which are the exact features constituting development of a country. Historically it has been largely synonymous with economic development. Recently it is also often used in a holistic and multi-disciplinary context of human development as well as other concepts like competitiveness, quality of life or subjective well-being. International development is different from simple development in that it is specifically composed of institutions and policies that arose after World War II. These institutions focus on alleviating poverty and improving living conditions in previously colonised and other poor countries.
