HS 200F — Social Movements for Emancipatory Development

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Students study theories of social mobilization; explore the relationships and tensions between state and non-state actors in social movements including NGOs, people’s movements, and religious groups; study selected social movements for their lessons for sustainable development process, failures, and achievements; and articulate their own “theories of change” about the role of social movements around critical problems for social inclusion. Usually offered every year.
