New Course on African Development

We are pleased to announce a new course for Fall 2008, to be offered Tuesday/Thursday at 2:00 - 3:30pm. The course will be taught by Cynthia Howson, a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. She is currently in Senegal doing field work for her dissertation. Here is the catalog description of the new course.

IPE 312: Political Economy of African Development
This course studies the role played by international, national and local institutions in development policy and practice in Africa. With a 'global to local' strategy, the course explores the roles and agendas of international development institutions, examines the ways in which states negotiate international and domestic pressures through specific case studies and finally views the domestic pressures and the lived experience of power, politics and economic incentives through the lens of local institutions.

Prerequisite: IPE 201.
