GEOG 66 Geopolitics of Humanitarianism

 In this course, students will critically examine the dramatic changes to the geopolitics of humanitarian intervention, development, and capacity-building since the end of the Cold War. The end of the Cold War saw the transformation of humanitarianism from a marginal position to the center of international policy and a rapid increase in militarized humanitarian interventions. The “new humanitarianism” led to a change from needs-based to rights-based humanitarian interventionism, transforming humanitarian action from short-term emergency aid to long-term involvement, assistance, and capacity building.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
