The course will involve exploring and questioning what development is, how to evaluate development, and what are some of the root causes of the many development challenges facing the world today. It invites you to consider how issues such as runaway inequality, poverty, climate change, hunger and conflict can be addressed and a more equal and sustainable world can be achieved? If you are interested in human rights, community, sustainability, social justice, culture, inequality, neo-liberalism, colonialism and other topics relating to human development here and around the globe, then this course will be of interest to you.
