In this internship course, we study how communities work to address local community issues and problems and how they develop means to resolve them. We examine the issues of community problem solving by considering how government, not for profits, and landlords negotiate community based housing issues on a local level. Students will explore how each group plays a role in the process, their interdependencies, their sources of power and their vulnerabilities. Students will analyze how groups in society work to make changes in communities and how they deal with conflicts that come with competing needs and interests. That includes notions of the public good and private rights. The internship will provide opportunities for students to consider how their academic training is relevant to addressing community based problems and to understanding power and resistance in “real time”.
This supervised field experience in international criminal justice organizations will enable students to gain work experience using their academic training in program development, policy support or research. Students find internships in international agencies including governmental and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).
