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, dispossessed of land, lack appropriate skills, quality education and/or other resources, are not able to benefit from the fruits of this “progress” and “development”. A critical analysis of the dynamics between the processes of marginalities and collective deprivation, and the macro processes of development and its trajectories has become very significant for informed practice with communities. Today, development practitioners require multiple perspectives to analyse and engage with present day complex realities of life and livelihoods. This necessitates capacity enhancement and development of newer strategies to serve the interests of 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.

The M.A. Social Work in Community Organisation and Development Practice (CODP) programme aims to blend a critical socio-political analysis of marginalities of communities with appropriate strategies and approaches in enabling the process of claiming their entitlements and rights. This programme envisages preparation of a cadre of development practitioners that could effectively respond to the contemporary concerns of marginalised communities and to promote people-centred development. The curriculum of CODP brings synergy across various components such as course work, field education and social research spread across four semesters. Graduates of M.A. Social Work in CODP find meaning in working in a range of rural and urban settings — government as well as non-governmental development organisations and projects, people’s organisations and movements, trade unions, and corporate social responsibility initiatives. Some may also engage in self-initiated work in areas or on issues that require innovative approaches and strategies, as well as contribute to policy practice and advocacy.
