Students interested in this program must first receive permission to participate from the program leader.
Changes in markets and trade policies, in particular regional trade agreements such as NAFTA and DR-CAFTA, have had significant impact on the social, political, and economic organizations throughout the world. This course looks at how communities that have been affected by these changing conditions organize and advocate for their interests within the framework of changing economic relationships. Students form a delegation to Nicaragua where they will visit urban and rural communities and will meet with community organizers, business leaders, government officials, and U.S. Embassy officials to learn about advocacy and social change.
