    This course will be taught by Polson Visiting Professor Kevin Healy. Course Description: The contributions of non-governmental organizations from civil society to local development in Latin America will be the focus of this course. The course will analyze selected case studies from Bolivia Peru, Colombia and Mexico to demonstrate effective and alternative development strategies to mainstream approaches to benefit low-income families and micro-regions The selected case studies represent small-scale project experiences in community-based tourism, organic agriculture( cocoa and coffee), community museums, self-managed production enterprises, Andean traditional textile revitalization, and indigenous and peasant crafts marketing. This professor has had first-hand experiences (as both a funder and researcher-disseminator) over many years with these selected grassroots development organizations and will include discussions and class exercises on the role and methodology of foreign aid in fostering grassroots development. Undergraduates may request enrollment (background in sociology and good academic standing) by contacting Maina Dhital at md732@cornell.edu.
