The syllabus will comprise approximately 750 pages of literature.
Practical project work is ongoing throughout the course, and will involve: identifying an organization as fieldsite for research, making a research plan (including formulation of research questions and methods, making observations and interviews with relevant people, and analyzing written material), writing an executive summary, and the production of a final examined written report.
Teaching is in the form of seminars and workshops, during which students will be expected to participate in discussions led by the course manager. Students will be expected to prepare critical questions on course readings, give oral presentations, lead research seminar discussions, collaborate on critical writing, and provide mutual feedback on the development of their empirical projects.
Mandatory requirements for the course: students must submit a research plan mid-way through the course, and are required to run a research seminar (including oral presentation) in order to be eligible for the final exam.
