A 3-week summer school programme to be held at SOAS, University of London on the subject of NGOs and Social Movements.
Suitable for students aged 18 years and above.
Full Event Details:
This course provides a critical introduction to NGOs, the nature of social protest, how they have interacted and influenced each other, and how they have globalised. It questions the perception that NGOs offer an alternative to state-led development models, considers the concept of humanitarian intervention in diverse contexts and explores how social movements are posing a challenge to neoliberalism. It examines both the theoretical basis for NGO and social movement strategies for social change as well as their practical implications, and draws on a number of case studies, exploring what kind of development and change is possible.
