Content

This unit is a foundational unit in International and Community Development.  It provides an in-depth introduction to concepts and practices of human development.  It introduces students to key debates in development thinking, addressing social inequality, poverty, and exclusion, as a basis for understanding local, national and global efforts to promote justice, reduce poverty, and build environments for people to lead productive, creative and fulfilling lives. 

This unit critically evaluates human development from a variety of perspectives, including international development as a global project, transformative or development alternatives, and community development.  Utilsing a series of rich case studies this unit engages students in the current and emerging debates, about individual, community, organsiational and institutional policy and practice in striving for human development outcomes.  

Students will gain an appreciation of the multidisciplinary nature of development studies,  the linkages and disconnects between development approaches, and the complex nature of working across human visions of modernity, and traditional cultures in an increasingly globilised world.
