Latin American Development Issues Course

LASC is so pleased to announce that we will be running again this 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. The course gives 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.

Participants will become familiar with many of the issues facing people in Latin America, how they have responded to them and how these problems relate to Ireland and the rest of the world.

This course carries a QQI Level 5 Minor Award, and participants who complete the assignments will receive a QQI Minor Award certificate. Academic credits achieved with a Minor Award can contribute towards achieving a Major Award, as well as being an achievement in their own right.

The course will be run on Tuesday evenings, starting from 25th of January, from 7 – 9 pm in the Ballsbridge College of Further Education on the Shelbourne Road in Dublin 4.
