- Lecture/Discussion: 3
An examination of the causes and consequences of poverty and inequality in the Global South. Drawing on case studies from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East this class identifies the causes, manifestations, and implications of poverty and inequality, and evaluates the political responses and policies adopted by local, regional, national, and international actors.
