【Course Objectives】

This coursework examines the emerging Transition Discourses (TDs) in international development, with a particular focus on grassroots social innovations, cultural practices and political project in Global North and Global South. It explores systemic alternatives to neoliberal globalization.

【Course Contents】

The coursework divides into two parts. The first part (Sessions 1 to 5) discusses history of neoliberalism and its social, political, and ecological impacts in international development. Then, it examines the recent debate on New Eco-Social Contract (UNRISD) and Transition Discourses as a matrix of post-neoliberal world.
The second part (Sessions 6 to 12) investigates the diversity of grassroots social innovations in Global North and Global South, with a particular focus on their contributions to inclusive development. In particular it discusses designs for economic alternatives that boost ‘just transition’, based on the grammars of social, gender, and environmental justices and ethics of care.
In principle, each class consists of lecture, short presentation and group discussion. Students are required to read indicated reading materials in advance and prepare for in-class presentation and discussion.
At the end of coursework, it is expected that students are able to design scenarios of just transition with a set of public policies (Sessions 13 and 14).
