(August 2016) International Women's Health and Human Rights
This course provides an overview of women's health and human rights, beginning in infancy and childhood, then moving through adolescence, reproductive years and aging. We consider economic, social, political and human rights factors, and the challenges women face in maintaining health and managing their lives in the face of societal pressures and obstacles. We focus on critical issues, namely those that may mean life or death to a woman, depending on whether she can exercise her human rights. These critical issues include: being born female and discrimination; poverty; unequal access to education, food, paid work and health care; and various forms of violence. Topics discussed include son preference, education, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, violence in the home and in war and refugee circumstances, women's work, sex trafficking, and aging.

HABITAT III - Bridging Cities & Nations to Tackle Urban Development (IPS 275)
From climate change to refugee housing, cities have powered into an expanding role in international affairs, helping national governments navigate critical global challenges. Every twenty years, the world convenes at the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (HABITAT) to debate human settlement and collectively redraw our urban future. Using HABITAT III in Quito, Ecuador as a lens, we explore urban growth and governance; technology and finance; environmental and cultural sustainability; international negotiations and multilateral cooperation. Includes independent research on themes from HABITAT III and the New Urban Agenda.
