Programme Description

This course provides a critical introduction to the history, nature and impact of social protest and social movements, the politics of neoliberal development and rise of NGOs into a global industry. It analyses how social movements and NGOs have interacted and influenced each other, and how they have globalised. It questions the notion of development as economic growth, assesses the critiques against NGOs as alternatives to state-led development models, considers the concept and the use of humanitarian intervention in diverse contexts, discusses the role of labour and labour organising alongside social movements and explores the extent to which movements are posing a challenge to neoliberal and capitalist development. Finally, it examines both the theoretical basis for social movement and NGO strategies for social change as well as their practical implications, and draws on a number of case studies, exploring what kind of development and social change is possible....

Synopsis

In these turbulent times, it is important to focus on the founding processes and foundations of our social and political existence. Many structures, identities and ideas we have taken for granted, from democracy and equality to the very idea of truth itself, have been contested over the last years. Through theoretical discussions and empirical examples, this course explores the ways in which post-foundational thought can be of use in the social sciences and humanities to tackle such phenomena. A focus on discourse and meaning-making is a contemporary megatrend within the social sciences and humanities. Within this larger trend, post-foundational discourse theory forms a critical framework through which to understand the political and contested nature of various phenomena. By shifting the focus from taking political, economic and social concepts at their face value to the ways in which meaning-making always takes place through contingent concepts, discourses and structures we inhabit, post-foundational discourse theory will provide the students a distinct and a productive perspective from which to approach their topics of interest. The course discusses different approaches to post-foundationalism and allows students to develop their own perspective... [-]

About

Science, technology and related expertise have taken an increasingly prominent role in society. Public unease with and controversy over the way science and technology progress and expertise is applied to address societal needs, expectations and demands have however grown proportionally. Institutions such as the European Union have recognized this as a major question, leading to what has been sometimes depicted as a crisis of trust in science and, more recently, a crisis of rationality in addressing public issues. A number of theoretical frameworks and approaches have been developed over the years. Though these may differ considerably as to how the origin of the problem is diagnosed and the answer is conceived, there is a widespread agreement that any simplistic view of the interface between science and society is to be abandoned, and that more inclusive approaches have to be worked out....
