With a Justice Based Approach, we reflect on why — after 25 years of rights-based approaches — inequality, environmental destruction, oppression, and impunity are bigger challenges than ever before. We will critically challenge and explore many assumptions about methodology and practice in the following areas:

All Five Pillars of the Justice Based Approach
Power and oppression
Strategic and personal leadership
Effective programme design
Development theory and history
Evidence-based decision-making
Participatory approaches
System analysis
Localization and decolonizing aid
Rights-based programming
Monitoring and evaluation for learning
Ethical programming and accountability
Climate and gender mainstreaming

We will also explore a number of innovative and exciting alternative approaches to social and environmental change that you can apply to your work. The course will challenge you, inspire you and give you the tools to support communities and partners to lead change that is truly transformative.
