  • Overview

    In a globalised society, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), citizen action, social movements and networks play an ever more essential role in progressive social change. This subject engages with social political issues and strategies for social and political change, advocacy, campaigns for change, and proposed solutions in order to initiate change. Students develop critical and analytical skills, learn how to draw on relevant theory and apply this in advocacy, policy development for government, and communication and campaign practices. Students develop skills in action research, and communicative advocacy using social media and digital technologies, as well as knowledge of key principles of community organising.
