Coll 115. Development in Crisis

In the current globalization process, economic development faces a triple crisis: exclusion of hundreds of millions of people, an environmentally unsustainable growth pattern, and lack of structural transformation. In this team-taught course we analyze the reasons for the triple crisis and explore policy solutions that lead to democratization of development, to an increase in the well-being of halfvthe world’s population without jeopardizing the sustainability of the natural environment, and to a transformation of the economic structure.

The course starts on Jan 24 and ends on March 6 after the March2-3 conference on the same topic. Students are required to attend the conference.

The two credit course counts as credit in Economics, History, International Relations, and Politics.
