Examines strategies and processes of contemporary social change in the United States, other developed countries, developing countries, and transnational contexts. Aimed at students who hope to produce social change but have not settled on the particular organizational "platform" for which they will make change. That is, individuals might try to change from government organization, from social movements in civil society, as private sector social entrepreneurs, or even as unencumbered individuals. Through an inductive examination of a large number of social change projects, students will gain a knowledge of strategies of change that include activities centering on government, law, social movements, joint governance, philanthropy, and private markets. Course should apply to students with imagination, initiative, social ambition, and will aim to foster an expertise in social change that consists of keen strategic sensibilities and analogical ability to know what has worked elsewhere and how that can be adopted to one's own circumstances.
