About this Unit
The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were established in 2000 as a blueprint to meet the needs of the world’s poorest and quickly became the dominant paradigm driving global development. The goals were targeted to be met by 2015 but no country has yet to approach success in achieving the goals. This unit critically examines the MDGs and in particular their impact on and engagement with women and other groups who remain the poorest and most vulnerable across the globe. Through this critique students will identify the structures, institutions and systems producing global inequalities; the significance of dominant development discourses in creating and continuing inequalities; and the intersections with social categories such as race, gender, sexuality, disability, class, religion and ethnicity. In order to demonstrate their understanding and critique, students will design a program for a specific disadvantaged group in a targeted region with a particular need to be met, such that the proposed program can sit within a suite of programs so as to ensure the ultimate aim of sustainable development.
