This is a lively and participative course open to people with any kind of interest in Latin America. The course gives participants insight into the causes and consequences of lack of development in Latin America. Participants will acquire a general understanding of Latin American social, political, historical and economic developments as well as more detailed information about topics of contemporary significance, such as trade, labour issues, indigenous issues and popular resistance.
Participants will become familiar with the issues, how people in Latin America have responded to them, how these problems related to Ireland and the rest of the world and how people here can take action on these matters.
Students may submit assessment work during the course in order to achieve the QQI Level 5 Minor Award “Global Development Issues.” 5N4127
