Communities are at critical crossroads across the Global South. In a technology and market-driven process of development, the expanse of the marginalised and deprived sections of communities has increased. Those who have been historically disadvantaged, who lack land, appropriate skills, higher education and/or other resources, are not able to benefit from the fruits of this so called progress and development. With pro-poor, pro-marginalised perspectives, the concern is with the most ‘invisible’ groups in society. It is necessary to mobilise them as a first step in order for them to utilise spaces that may exist for them to seek their entitlements and rights. Unless the marginalised are organised and become aware of their rights, sustainable development is not possible.

Today, development practitioners, whether at the starting level or already in the field, require multiple perspectives to analyse and engage with present day complex realities. This necessitates capacity enhancement and development of newer strategies to serve the interests of the disadvantaged populations. Further, understanding local situations and working with communities to address key concerns is as critical today as being able to see national and international connections of these very concerns in the globalising world.

These concerns would be addressed through the Master of Arts in Social Work (Community Organisation and Development Practice). This programme envisages preparation of a cadre of development practitioners and activists who could effectively respond to the contemporary concerns of marginalised communities. For this purpose, they would be equipped to integrate critical thinking and practical field experience so as to contribute to the process of social transformation.

The programme comprises classroom as well as field work, both of which are core and connected components of the curriculum across the four semesters. Students with a background in CODP find meaning in work with a range of rural and urban settings — voluntary organisations, people’s organisations and movements, trade unions, government and corporate social responsibility projects, as well as in themselves initiating work in new areas or on issues that require innovative approaches. Across these organisations, they are engaged in practice, comprising field as well as research-based work from grassroots to policy and advocacy levels.
