The course will look at the international context, African development policies, the case for economic policy reform both at the macroeconomic and sector levels and specific advocacy cases – as well as locally applied work.
 
The course will stretch the participants, challenging them with a range of modules including political economy, political ecology, gender justice, popular mobilisation, social media and community organising.
