300315 Introduction into Development Policy and Development Sociology (Ü) (WiSe 2009/2010)

Inhalt, Kommentar

The first block of the seminar offers an overview on the most important actors and institutions and introduces into the main characteristics of North-South relations, and the changes and consistencies those relations experienced since the end of the Cold War. Central policy approaches with high impact on the plight of developing nations comprise modernization and dependence theory, the management of the “debt trap” and the subsequently initiated structural adjustment programs, and the current approach of good governance which extended conditionality and supported the increasing role of civil society within development policies.

The second block takes a closer look at the societal level. This includes the livelihood approach to adapt development policies more closely to the targeted beneficiaries, the role of the informal sector in developing economies which was well theorized by the Bielefelder School, and the role of civil society for political and economic empowerment.

The final block goes beyond policies and societal aspects on the national level. It seeks to analyze global and transnational processes, and how they feed back into development dynamics. After discussing the phenomenon of globalization we will particularly look at so-called international civil society, the role of migration, and the upcoming issue of environmental change and migration.
