Leadership in Hostile Environments - This Course Has Been Cancelled

Course Code: 
GSGS 3559
Catarina Krizancic

In this course, we will explore the question of how to approach the work of intervention by NGOs and intergovernmental groups in hostile environments and, specifically, what kinds of skills, methods, leadership, and agency is called for to effect change in a complex environment.  The class will research and discuss some of the concepts, values, histories, and ideologies that underpin and define these interventions, but our main focus will be on applied quesions - given the demand, how are successful teams and leaders selected, trained, evaulated, and sustained?
