Description

Is the world broken and can it be fixed? Why do we so often fail to stop global problems – like the spread of COVID19, climate change, financial crises, war and terrorism – and what can be done? In this discussion-based seminar, students will learn to evaluate different strategies used by activists to trigger social change: from Gandhi and the anti-colonial movement to present-day campaigners against global warming, mass atrocities and economic inequality. Students will develop a critical understanding of how our lives are shaped by the failures of our global political system – and how social change strategies can be used to change and democratize it. This course is especially relevant for students interested in social justice, climate change, human rights, political economy, peace studies, globalization, international organizations and the study of democracy.

Course Requirements:

All written assignments for this course will be asynchronous.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for advanced undergraduates, in other words Juniors and Seniors. Entire online participation is available.

Class Format:
