Course Descriptions

HS 242F — Development Aid

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

Looks at the evolution of international development aid through multilateral, bilateral, and non-State actors; explores underlying theories of development and how theory has real world influence through aid strategies and programs; examines motivations, objectives and interests of aid programs; and introduces concepts and current debate on aid effectiveness. It helps students develop and articulate their own “theories of change” to shape aid programs toward a more sustainable development. Usually offered every year.
