Summer Session I: June 3 to July 5, 2013Poverty, Inequalities and the Environment: An Introduction to Sustainable International Development (PIE) provides an overview of the measurement, consequences and global and national policy responses to poverty and inequality in the context of sustainable development. PIE also introduces students to sustainable development theory and practice. Topics include poverty, inequalities, globalization, overseas development aid, human rights, gender, land reform and counter land reform, social movements, religion and culture, the environment, and the role of institutions. The course takes a multi-disciplinary approach with economic, sociological, cultural, and geographic perspectives on what development is and what these different perspectives suggest for poverty reduction. The course will encourage each student to come to her/his own definition of sustainable development within the general framework that sustainable development links environmental, economic, and social priorities within a theory of development ethics. We will examine theories of change and models of development against the evidence of their ability to produce authentic development that reduces poverty and inequalities without damage to the earth's ecosystems.
