Latin America Development Issues Course

Latin America Solidarity Centre is pleased to announce one more year the Latin America Development Issues Course. This is a lively and participative course open to people with any kind of interest in Latin America, and it will give participants insight into the causes and consequences of social justice and human rights issues in the region.

Participants will acquire a general understanding of Latin American social, political, historical and economic contexts as well as more detailed learning on topics of contemporary significance, such as globalisation and trade; labour issues; migration; struggles for indigenous rights; environmental and climate change problems and threats; feminist and gender rights movements and other popular resistance.

This course carries a QQI Level 5 Minor Award, so participants who complete the assignments will receive a QQI Minor Award certificate.  

The course will be run on Tuesday evenings, starting from 19th of January, from 7 – 9 pm. Due to the coronavirus situation, this year the course will be fully delivered online through Zoom.
