Huan Gao

Today, we are often encouraged to be civically engaged and to associate in order to improve our society. Even in authoritarian regimes where free associations are limited, they are seen as a force for human rights and progress. So how do our associations, ranging from neighborhood watch groups to international NGOs, contribute to changing the world? This course will examine civic associations to address some of the most pressing global issues, such as climate change, inequality, and epidemics. We will delve into classic literature on civil society, analyze contemporary organizations and movements, and evaluate their political, social, and economic impact. This course incorporates engagement with local NGOs; students should expect 6-8 hours of community work over the term.
