Course Overview

This course will introduce and explain the concepts and tools of economics. It will teach participants a number of economic principles, furnishing them with a set of tools to both enhance their analytical ability and to enable them to work more closely with economists. Applications and case-studies will be presented alongside the theory; participants will be encouraged to relate these to their own areas of work and that of their organisation as a whole. The approach will be discursive and participatory.
