Inhalt:

This seminar focuses on the international debate on power and empowerment which takes place in various fields such as sociology, economics, political science, development studies, and social work, among others.
This is a post-grade course focused on introducing first semester students of the master program to the main concepts and discussions related to power, empowerment, building-up of individual and collective power and the interlinkages of these concepts with social movements.
The overall aim is that students acquire knowledge and develop a critical understanding of the theories and discussions surrounding those topics and that on such a basis they can put them into practice in their future work.
Concepts such as power, lack of power, empowerment, collective action, among others, will be presented and debated. The gender perspective of those will be discussed as well as the interface between individual and collective power.
A key question for the course is how individuals get interested on, are mobilized for, or are empowered to take part in collective processes.

Empfehlungen zu speziellen Kenntnissen und Bereitschaften:

Students are expected to participate actively in the discussions related to the course and current international and national development topics.

Arbeitsformen:

This is a lecture and discussion class with group work.

Prüfungsleistungen bzw. Testat:

A ten- to twenty-page essay in English or German (excluding cover page, index, literature and references) shall be presented by the students of the course. The deadline will be announced at the beginning of the course.
