Concepts of social capital and civil society are intrinsically linked to social justice and the development of social welfare, political stability, economic development, and governmental performance. Advocates of social justice require a commitment to building loving communities through the development of social capital. In the contemporary world, romantic notions of love are a booming industry however, love as a sustainable foundation of a healthy civil society has largely been forgotten. The concept of Love is a foundation of social justice and positive social change. This course prepares students to critically evaluate the value of love and its potential impacts on the successful development of social capital, in order to sustain healthy civil societies.
Through theoretical perspectives and practical exercises, this course introduces students to the broad concept of love as a sustainable foundation to building social capital. Students will develop their understanding of love beyond that of the romantic notion and examine how love can be utilised in the development of social capital, within the context of everyday settings. This course requires students to critically evaluate the importance of their role in building social capital and its relationships to individuals, social and economic development, and civil society.
