IDEV 3200  Appr To Sustained Devlpm  (3 Credit Hours)  

This course gives insight into how to make development more sustainable, durable, compatible with nature, the needs of current and future generations, and, in particular, the essential needs of the world's poor. Keeping in mind that the definition of sustainability is heavily dependent on local contexts and concerns, the course provides several approaches to understanding sustainable development. These include: governance at global, national, and local levels, the resource curse hypothesis, sustainable and durable peace, international aid and debt structures, and a gender lens. The assignments take the students through a process of developing a policy for a current problem in a developing country of their choice.

Using case studies from around the world, students will explore pragmatic solutions and urban planning techniques to address current and future challenges.

IDEV 4300  Identity and Development  (3 Credit Hours)  

A principal concern of many development theorists and practitioners today is the need to recognize differences. That means, fundamentally, respecting differences in identity and how one's identity or identities, such as gender, ethnicity, family structure, national origin, political affiliation, race, and religion play out in daily practice. The first section of the course provides historical and theoretical context for current discussions of identity as they relate to, affect and shape current international development theory and practice. The second section of the course examines cross-cutting issues where identity concerns intersect, with an emphasis on current trends and challenges, such as migration, violence, and urban change.

Prerequisite(s): (IDEV 3200, 3200, PSDV 3200 or 3200).

IDEV 4320  Migrants Refugees & Develpment  (3 Credit Hours)  

This course provides students with the opportunity to consider the implications of global population movements – 244 million in 2016, exclusive of internal migrants – and the events they reflect. We examine internal and external migration flows, their political, economic, social, cultural, and environmental causes and consequences. Moreover, we consider whether migrants may be an engine of development, a hindrance, or both. Success stories of migrant integration, upward mobility and thriving businesses go alongside with tales of discrimination, crowded slums and refugee camps where disease is rampant, education is scarce, and youth widen the ranks of the unemployed and revert to crime as a way of living and violence as a means of surviving. Based on migration theories and case studies, this course aims at understanding these patterns and exploring how the pace of migration may be slowed and conditions improved in order for migrant populations to better integrate their new societies and become positive agents of change.

Prerequisite(s): IDEV 3200 and (ECON 1020, 1020, 1020 or 1020).

IDEV 4330  Post-Conflict Development  (3 Credit Hours)  

The main objective of this course is to help students understand post-conflict development, in particular the rebalancing of unequal power relations through restorative and retributive justice. Determining the appropriate response to atrocities of gruesome scale, such as genocide and crimes against humanity, is one of the most difficult tasks scholars and policymakers have had to grapple within societies transitioning from conflict. Several case studies and a variety of transitional justice mechanisms are covered in the course, including truth and reconciliation commissions, reparations, ad-hoc criminal tribunals, the International Criminal Court, hybrid courts and domestic courts. The course ends by exposing tensions between the aim of justice and other crucial aims in post-conflict societies, including lasting peace, reconciliation, nation-building, poverty elimination, and gender and refugee issues, in order to familiarize students with the complexities of political development. <br/>

Prerequisite(s): IDEV 1010 and 3200.

IDEV 4560  Internship  (1-3 Credit Hours)

IDEV 4561  Environment & Development  (3 Credit Hours)  

Developing countries face serious environmental challenges. Resource exploitation, rapid industrialization, disadvantageous trade and labor abuses are some of the potential consequences of unbalanced and non-sustainable development. Sustainable human development ensures that environmental stewardship accompanies concomitant progress in economic growth, responsive governance, social justice and healthy of the population. Sustainable development implies that resources are used widely, industrialization occurs without uncontrolled pollution and labor is engaged in production and trade practices that avoid exploitation. Global and local environmental problems and their root causes are discussed. Potential avoidance and mitigation measures are presented which may be implemented to guide a developing economy toward responsible and sustainable development.

IDEV 6670  Intl Pol Econ Relations  (3 Credit Hours)  

In this new millennium of rapid change, globalization, and the privatization of international development, we seek to understand how political activity intersects with economic activity and how that nexus impacts the Global South. While the course title reads international political economy, we should acknowledge that global might be a more appropriate term, thereby including increasingly important non-state actors. Students use the concepts and theories of global political economy to analyze aid, trade, investment, development policy, monetary relations, and regional integration in order to understand how the world has worked in the past, is working now, and is likely to work in the future.

Prerequisite(s): IDEV 3200 and ECON 1020.

The following themes are examined decade by decade since the 1950s: development theories and strategies, international context for development, donor policy, development performance and trends. This is done on a global and regional scale, as well as through the prism of target developing countries selected by the students.
