About this Unit
This unit focuses on the ways local communities develop control over conditions of social, political and economic injustice and deprivation and will critically analyse theories and practice of community and social development both in Australia and globally, from a human rights perspective. Particular attention is given to the Asia Pacific region and case studies are used to illustrate the major issues. This unit draws on the disciplines of international relations, geography, social anthropology, economics, politics, social policy, history, sociology, organisation theory, social work and social psychology.
