HHH students note Humanitarianism course may be offered again May 2012

EricforHHHericjames.jpg Eric James - Director of Program Development at American Refugee Committee may offer again PA 5821 Humanitarianism in May 2012 (spring term enrollment).

As before, this course will be 3 credits and will include an overnight refugee camp simulation off-site.

The course begins by introducing students to the basic concepts, premises and challenges of the humanitarian endeavor. Using a mix of lectures, guest visitors, case-studies and small group interactions, the second portion of the course explores the theories, ethical precepts and tools of humanitarianism. The course culminates in a full-day simulation exercise intended to familiarize students with the implementation of humanitarian assistance projects.
