Course description
This is what students will see IF they read the course handbook
In this course, we will research, discuss and give presentations on various nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working for social change. During the
semester, you will choose a global/social/political issue of interest to you and
research the work being done by NGOs to tackle that problem. You will focus
initially on the NGOs, the issues, their make-up, funding, local projects, and the
volunteers. In the second part of the semester, you will deepen your research to
(a) include fieldwork with your NGO (e.g., participate in an NGO event/project as
a volunteer, do interviews with NGO workers), or (b) explore the links that
domestic NGOs have with international NGOs or overseas projects working on
the same issues. At the end of both cycles, you and your research partner will
give presentations to demonstrate your understanding of how an NGO works on
various issues, and how people can be involved locally to effect social change.
