ECON 244 - Middle East Development

4 credits
The aim of this course is to gain a deeper understanding of development issues in the region known as the Middle East or South West Asia and North Africa (SWANA), by studying and discussing economic, political and social theories and empirical analysis to provide a deeper understanding of conditions in the region.  The course will examine the legacy of colonialism and the presence of oil in shaping political and economic outcomes, as well as looking into the links between demography, labor markets, gender, poverty and development. As it is impossible to understand the economy of the region without studying social, political, cultural and historical issues, the course will be taught with an interdisciplinary emphasis. Intstructor Signature Required. Equivalent Course: MEST 244 . CLA-Breadth/Interdisciplinary, CLA-Diversity International
