DESCRIPTION

Focuses on the problems experienced by the world's less and least developed countries. Such countries -- in Africa, Asia and Latin America -- are struggling to develop in a political-economic context characterised by high rates of infant mortality, malnutrition, poverty, and illiteracy. The unit introduces students to theories of Third World development, including modernisation, dependency, basic needs, state-led, market-led and sustainable development perspectives. Case studies of successful and unsuccessful development are presented that include the contribution of international aid organisations like the World Bank, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), and the World Food Program. Australia's aid contribution is analysed including its official develop assistance program run by AusAid and its voluntary aid programs run by non-governmental organisations such as CARE Australia, Oxfam, etc.
