Communities and Conflict

Mobilizing Communities for Change

A course examining ideas of what we mean by community, its relevance as an organizing concept and the role of conflict. The course considers our roles as activists, organizers or change agents, and the situation of the organizations or institutions in which we work or are involved. We also think about the idea of community analysis, a systematic study of our immediate environment - the community, neighbourhood or town in which we live or work.
