The objective of this short-course is to understand the role that communities and social connections play in the development process. We will be particularly interested in understanding the positive and negative consequences of community involvement for growth and development in the short-run and the long-run. Apart from providing a particular community-based view of the development process, an additional objective of this course will be to demonstrate the use of theory in informing empirical research.
