International Development

Affiliation:   Centre for Sustainable Community Development, Simon Fraser University

Brief Profile:   The International Development unit and the Centre for Sustainable Community Development at Simon Fraser University, in partnership with Cuso International and the BC Council for International Education, with the support of our Project Advisory Committee, have designed an innovative public dialogue series and collaborative learning program that engages leaders of trans-local diaspora communities in Metro Vancouver. In Metro Vancouver, myriad diaspora communities from the Global South carry out significant trans-local development work in the regions, countries, and towns/villages of their origin. These efforts are as diverse as the leaders who initiate them. Some examples include: building schools in rural Pakistan, supporting local artists in South Africa, funding leadership programs in Namibia, creating female education opportunities in Southern Sudan, organizing for Haitian relief, supporting peacebuilding in Darfur, and initiating the purchase of goats for villagers in rural Ken
