What Will You Do?
Comparative Civil Society: A study of US and Portuguese sectors (PA 5585A; PA 497/ Pol-Sci 493; Pol-Sci 5580)
Credits: 3 (Graduate or Undergraduate)
Instructor: Greg Vonnahme
Professor Allan Katz will co-teach this course.
Learning outcomes: In this unique study abroad experience, you will explore and compare civil society in the United States and Portugal. The course will explore the relationship between nonprofit organizations and their governments. More directly, how does the character of a social welfare state promote/hinder the nonprofit sector? Through lectures in Kansas City and subsequently a series of meetings with philanthropic, civil society and government leaders in Portugal, students will be exposed to the challenges faced in a young democracy. There will also be an opportunity to question government leaders as well as entrepreneurs about Portugal's role in the EU and the world. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how it is imperative for sectors to work together to move society forward.
