Gender in Church Community Development Practice—An International Case Study Approach

Gender, poverty and injustice continue to affect people across the world, and the church in its local, regional and international bodies recognizes that there is a Christian duty to respond.  In this course, we explore church-based approaches to community development. We review the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and evaluate their relevance for local communities.  Drawing insights from current human development theories and case studies from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe, we analyse the intersecting systems of poverty and inequality; consider how to collect relevant information and to evaluate it in relation to our own specific local context; assess existing practice; and design new models of sustainable development for local communities. Participants are invited to share their knowledge and experience.
