簡述

在致力於提升發展的數十年之後,世上為何仍存在如此眾多的貧窮問題?世界各地不平等的根本原因究竟為何?何以貧窮、經濟轉變以及發展政策常對於男性與女性有不同之影響?此課程探討這些議題之外,同時亦檢視發展本身之歷史、其基本假設、其支持者與批評者的範疇。課程衡量男性與女性所給予的發展定義,雙方主要為某特定地區的居民,同時亦包含援助人員、決策者及政府官員。本課程將從發展計畫與政策如何在非洲、拉丁美洲、亞洲及美拉尼西亞(譯註:澳洲東北部群島)等地的都市及農村日常生活裡施行,來探討哪些潛在的政治、經濟、社會及性別動態會促使「發展」成為持續不斷的世界性問題。

Description

After decades of efforts to promote development, why is there so much poverty in the world? What are some of the root causes of inequality world-wide and why do poverty, economic transformations and development policies often have different consequences for women and men? This course explores these issues while also examining the history of development itself, its underlying assumptions, and its range of supporters and critics. It considers the various meanings given to development by women and men, primarily as residents of particular regions, but also as aid workers, policy makers and government officials. In considering how development projects and policies are experienced in daily life in urban and rural areas in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Melanesia, this course asks what are the underlying political, economic, social, and gender dynamics that make "development" an ongoing problem world-wide.
