PPOL 767 - NGOs, Firms & Think Tanks
This course is about the role of NGOs, firms and think tanks in the development process. While early course components will include some theoretical and historical elements, a large part of the course will be devoted to real-world examples of the various roles these actors can play in development. Students will also discuss, with the professor and several invited practitioners, the difficulties associated with the rise of these actors (e.g. questions of to whom NGOs are accountable; or the benefits vs risks from firms' involvement in the development process). Finally, there will be extensive interactive components (role plays / simulations) to the course in which students explore the complex dynamics of development processes that have become increasingly ‘multi-stakeholder-based’ in recent years through the rise of NGOs, firms and think tanks.
