目的・概要

This interdisciplinary course introduces students to theories and current issues in social development.  It starts by considering the historical, political, and social contexts in which social development thoughts have increasingly become influential in both development theories and policies, as an alternative to the past development paradigm that centered on economic development.  It then examines various theories concerning welfare and social policy and their relevance to contemporary developing countries. The course focuses on topics such as education and literacy, health and nutrition, employment, housing and settlement, social services delivery, civil society and community participation, and poverty reduction.  It explores effective approaches to provide social protection, assist social integration, and promote social justice, by drawing on concrete country cases from both developed and developing countries.
