Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course analyses the field of humanitarian aid on the basis of organizations. Aspects like structure and focus of organizations, political, economic and social relationship will be studied. On the basis of literature, discussions, cooperation and the preparation of a seminar paper, students should get a deeper insight into the field of humanitarian aid.

Assessment and permitted materials

Grading includes students' participation in class (contribution to discussions, reports etc.), the presentation and the term paper. All scientifically tenable expedients are allowed!

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Regular attendance, three absences will be tolerated at most. Participation counts for 25%, two Discussion Papers for 5% each (at least 3 pages each), Presentation or additional two Discussion Papers for 20% (at least 6 pages each) and Term Paper for 45% (at least 15 pages) of the final grade; all parts have to be positive in order to complete the seminar successfully.

Examination topics

This is a course with current assessment, listing the topics of assessment is therefore not reasonable.
