This course will introduce you to fieldwork in an international setting. It will allow you to learn about a particular region and context and to practice fieldwork methodologies in a local community. Before leaving, you will participate in a workshop about the history, politics, economics of the area you will be studying. You will also learn about the environmental and development challenges that the community is facing. On arrival, you will receive fieldwork training on economic and social impact analysis from UNSW and local staff. Under supervision, you will then undertake fieldwork in a designated community before attending a final de-briefing workshop where you will be encouraged to reflect on your experience with your peers.
