Module PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT PRACTICE PERSPECTIVES ON POVERTY

Module code: KD208
Credits: 5
Semester: 1
Department: INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
International: Yes
Overview Overview
 

The aim of this module is to introduce students to some key ideas and approaches within a model of development practice which is sometimes called ‘people-centred’, ‘participatory’ or ‘alternative’. These approaches provide a challenge to ‘mainstream’ or ‘conventional’ development interventions, and thereby encourage critical reflection on how development is, and should be, practised.
The main topic headings are:
Examining Different Perspectives of Development;
Exploring Key Concepts;
Critiques of Participatory Development;
Exploring Core Principles of People- Centred Development;
The Role of the Development Practitioner;
Contemporary development practice (case studies).
It is intended that through this module, students will have developed a constructively questioning attitude towards development work in general, and will be able to articulate this within their own perspectives on what appropriate development practice might look like.
