ILRLR 4052 - Making Development Equitable: Community Control in the New Economy

Fall or Spring (weeks 1-7). 2 credits. Letter grades only.

R. Applegate.

This course examines the emergence of community-based organizations as agents of economic development, emphasizing their actions to introduce an alternative approach to development that stresses the equitable outcomes needed to sustain communities, and assessing their role in reconfiguring development goals and practices to form the “social economy” in the US and around the world. To investigate the capacity-building and programmatic initiatives undertaken to control local/regional development, the course utilizes a comparative case study approach, along with direct interactions with practitioners from Buffalo’s Partnership for the Public Good.
