Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The first class on 7th October will be 100% online. Students who have problems attending online classes should inform the lecturer as soon as possible.

Group and individual consultations will be held face-to-face. As soon as the situation allows, the course will be switched to face-to-face. However, students will always have an option of continue attending the course 100% online too.

The main aim of the course is to provide an introduction and overview of "Foreign Aid" (Humanitarian and "Development" Cooperation) through major themes, topics as well as the lecturer´s experiences in working in the fields.

The main language used in the course is English (assignments can be written in German). Students who are uncertain about the active use of German and English, please consider taking the course 240081 KU GM2 instead.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be assessed based on regular attendance (includes online classes), quality of written assignments (that show that the student read, understood and critically appraised the assigned reading materials) and group presentations.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Background in political science, international relations, basic economics, sociology or anthropology will be an advantage but is not a requirement. Students who are also totally new to this topic can take part.

A good command of English to critically read the texts are necessary. Assignments can be written in either English or German but good scientific writing standard is expected. Lectures and discussions will be mainly held in English but questions can be asked in German too.

Prüfungsstoff

There are no examinations nor seminar papers required for this course. Students will be assessed through regular attendance, written assignments, group work and group presentations.

Details instructions on group organisations will be given accordingly.

Topics include (but will not be limited to): 1) 'new' actors in development aid; 2) aid effectiveness, accountability, ownership, and sustainability; and 3) links between humanitarian and "development" aid.
The impact of COVID-19 on overseas cooperation and humanitarian aid will be discussed as a cross-cutting issue.

It is important that the students learn to critically appraise the reading materials and respective topic.
