Legal Analysis for Development Governance

POLSCI 682S

Using case scenarios, we apply a legal analytical framework to development-related governance challenges in investment, trade, environment, land, community and human rights, health, corruption, corporate social responsibility, consumer literacy, children’s legal personality and other sectors. “Rules of the Game” and legal rules. Three levels: international, national (constitutional), community. De-mystify the way legal processes and legal authorities work (and don’t work) to advance development, and help public policy students and others engage effectively on the strength of this knowledge. For non-lawyers and those considering law careers. Guest practitioners. Case debriefings, briefings. Instructor: Admay
