IRĀ 8313. Cross-Cultural Approaches to Socio-Economic Development. 3 Semester Hours.

Development aid is rarely a neutral process. Alongside innovations in technology and income generation, the flow of technical support and financial assistance affects/is affected by local values, customs and power relations, to name a few. This course equips students with the analytic tools and historical, political and ethnographic perspectives with which to develop their own critical understanding of international aid with an emphasis on the pivotal role that culture plays in the development encounter.
