Module: Development approaches and practices (6 cr.)

Paola Minoia, University of Helsinki

Enrico Luzzati Chair in Cooperation and Development

Department of Economics and Statistics "Cognetti de Martiis"

Academic year 2016-2017

Course goals

This course gives an introduction to the history, theory and practice of development and international cooperation. Development studies tackle complex issues and cannot be confined within a single discipline; this module will also interact with various scholarly debates from human geography, political sciences, social and cultural studies, political ecology and indigenous studies, and has participatory approaches and civil society empowerment as ultimate emancipatory goals.

More specific aims of the course are:

a)     to allow students understanding international debates in the field of development (particularly in the Global South) and international cooperation (between North and South as well as within the Global South);

b)     to recognize different actors in cooperation, their priorities and discourses;

c)     to develop critical views about theories, policies and practices that are reflected in cooperation; d) to acquire familiarity with journals, institutions and researches in this field;

d)     to familiarize with some programmes of aid (funded by e.g. Italy or Europe) and worldwide in development and international policy fields;

e)     to grow interest in doing research in the global South and to interact with various groups; and

f)      to experience participatory research methods and project design for either research or development action, with specific thematic focus.

The language of the course is English.

Participation in the module requires attendance in the lectures, activity in class, reading of articles from international literature, writing of reports and projects.
