Christian Approaches to Humanitarian/Development Practices

Postgraduate short course

The class will develop an understanding of humanitarian/development practice and grapple with key issues that emerge in relation to ethics, good practice, and theological frameworks. Theology will be drawn upon as a method of critique and a dialogue partner to shape good practice in humanitarian/development work as practised primarily by the church or other faith-based organisations within a wide range of contexts. The class will identify methods of challenging poor practice where it may exist and enhance good practices in relation to the church/faith-based organisations and humanitarian/development through reflection on practice alongside exploring key literature.

Dates: June 5th – 12th 2021
