COURSE TITLE

DEMOCRACY AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS (Demokrasi dan Pergerakan Sosial)

COURSE CODE

SSP3024

SYNOPSIS

This course shall discuss democracy with a focus on the meaning of democracy, its various theories, its development and an evaluation of the democratic system, so as to derive lessons as to the conditions and processes that have either promoted or stymied the spread of democracy. As social movements are an integral component of civil society, democracy and democratisation, we shall also study social movements and its link to democracy and the process of democratization. This discussion shall encompass concepts, theory and the impact of social movements upon the economy and politics of a country.

We shall evaluate selected social movements in Malaysia and overseas so as to illustrate their integral role in the democratic process. Among some of the social movements we shall discuss are trade unions, student movements, women's movements, INGOs (like Consumers' International, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, etc.), micro-credit unions and revolutionary movements to evaluate their impact upon the development of democracy and civil society, be it nationally or globally. As well, the role of the media (traditional and internet) will be looked at.

(Kursus ini membincangkan mengenai demokrasi dengan memfokus kepada makna demokrasi, kepelbagaian teorinya, perkembangan dan penilaian sistem tersebut. Melalui analisis sebegini, pelajar mampu mengetahui faktor dan proses yang mengalakkan atau membantutkan proses perkembangannya. Memandangkan pergerakan sosial adalah komponen penting dalam masyarakat sivil, demokrasi dan pendemokrasian, kita akan mengkaji pergerakan sosial ini dan hubungannya dengan demokrasi dan proses pendemokrasian. Perbincangan ini meliputi konsep, teori dan impak pergerakan sosial terhadap ekonomi dan politik sesebuah negara.

Kita akan menilai beberapa pergerakan sosial yang terpilih di Malaysia dan luar negara supaya peranan pentingnya dalam proses demokrasi dapat ditunjukkan. Antara pergerakan sosial yang akan dikupas dalam kursus ini ialah kesatuan sekerja, gerakan mahasiswa, gerakan wanita, INGOs (seperti Consumers' International, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, dll.), kesatuan kredit mikro dan gerakan revolusi. Selain itu, peranan media (tradisional dan Internet) juga akan diperhalusi)
