Description

This course follows the development of humanitarian action from its inception to the present. Today, we are witnessing a major transformation of humanitarian action. The geopolitical changes unfolding from the end of the Cold War and the global war on terrorism have profoundly shifted the environment in which humanitarian actions and interventions take place. These changes—and proposed ways of responding to them—are triggering heated debates about both philosophical and operational issues within the humanitarian community. Long-held principles, such as neutrality and impartiality are being questioned and at times even discarded. The range of humanitarian actors has broadened to include celebrities, and for-profit firms. Some scholars contend that it is time to rethink the enterprise. Others believe that the present is not a time that calls for reconsidering basic principles. This class will challenge students to consider the basic principles, analytical frameworks, and activities required to protect the lives and dignity of people affected by crisis and conflict.

Course Requirements:

Class participation, three written reflections, group case study, and individual final project.

Intended Audience:

International Studies Majors and Minors

Class Format:

Seven themed modules explored through readings and lectures.
