    • Analyze specific international problems, illustrating the cultural, economic, and political differences that affect their solution.

Description
This course draws on key concepts from social theory to examine select social movements through a global perspective. Using case studies of movements that focus on such central thems as democracy, human rights, and economic justice, the course will explore how movements begin, the development of ideology and world view, and contrasting approaches to organization, tactics, strategy and leadership. On a broader level, students will examine the relationship between tradition and change, and movement and counter-movement, in order to evaluate how social movements have influenced-and continue to influence-the world we live in.
