This course explores the role of large energy and infrastructure projects in international development. Students will gain an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of modern development, as well as begin to understand how large projects are financed. In addition, students will begin to identify many of the social externalities associated with large projects, including renewable energy projects. The course will combine elements of international development theory, finance, corporations, human rights law, and environmental law; however, no specific prior coursework is required. The final grade will incorporate student participation, a project presentation, and final paper.
