Contribution de l'unité d'enseignement au profil d'enseignement *

The course means to teach students how to build a problematic (construction of objet/question/approach), how to link a theory to empirical material.

Objectifs de l'unité d'enseignement (et/ou acquis d'apprentissages spécifiques) *

This course is given in English

 

This course analyses national and international responses to large epidemies. Through the exemple of HIV and the way African states react to HIV, we will deal with question related to global health regimes or governance, the place of several actors and their interaction (NGOS, Firms, OI) in this.  We will see how States, in Africa especially react to this governance.

How to build a problematic:

Methodological guide : in building his problematic, the student will follow these lines :

 

-choose an object : what am I working on : a public policy, an institution, representations ? According to this objet, my question, my hypothesis, the theory I am using are different. Avoid too large objects (development policy ; health policy in general). This object has to be very precise. Ex : the implementation of the Global Fund policy in Kenya.

 

-choose a main question (you can then have sub-questions) : this question is linked to the object and depends on theories chosen. If the object is a public policy, the question will be linked to public policy theories. If the object is an institution, it will be linked to neo-institutionalist theories…Avoid questions like : what is the efficiency of a public policy (too difficult to demonstrate). The question has to be clear : what are the obstacles to the implementation of a specific policy in the framework of a neo-patrimonial state ? (in this case the theories mobilised will be theories on the neo-patrimonial state and theories on the implementation of public policies).

 

-Hypotheses : those are possible answers to the main question. Again they depend on the theories used. In the case of the questions above : my hypothesis is that neo-patrimonial practices run against the implementation of a specific policy.

 

-choose the empirical material/approach to analyse it. This has to be coherent with the rest (object/questions/hypothesis). This can be interviews, official documents, reports by NGOs…). Before starting a dissertation MAKE SURE THIS MATERIAL IS AVAILABLE. The approach used to analyse this material is linked to the theories used.

Méthodes d'enseignement et activités d'apprentissages *

The course includes a methodology and theoretical part, case studies and the presentation by the students of their problematic (the problematic of their dissertation).

IV. Evaluation
Méthode(s) d'évaluation *

 

There are two possibilities for the exams:

 

-first possibility: presence in course (I mean here the precence to at least 16 hours of teaching), plus an oral presentation of 20 minutes on the theme: public/private partnership in health, followed by a written work of 4 pages on the same subject which detailed the problematic developped by the student on this theme. The subject of this presentation is to be given to the professor in person (one page written problematic) by the 7th of November.

or: -a dissertation of ten pages, with a clear problematic (as detailed in the syllabus, at the beginning of the course and on the course page), on the following theme: the financing of the fight against HIV at the international level. The subject has to be given to me by mail (one page written problematic) by the 5th of December.

The written works and dissertations have to be given to me before the 30th of January for the fisrt session, 30th of august for the second session. The student who choose the first module, and who, because of health pb or others cannot be present in course, will have to give me the ten pages work. Those students who have not sent me the subject of their oral presentation before the 7th of November will automatically do the 10 pages work. Thsoe have not sent me their subject of 10 pages dissertation for the 5th of December will get 2 point less on their final examination.

 

all the work has to be done in english

 

Students who want some advise, have to contact me before the 24th of June,

Construction de la note (en ce compris, la pondération des notes partielles) *

 In their dissertation, the student will have to link a theoretical framework (one page minimum) to empirical material (interviews, official documents), with a minimum of 6 scientific references.
 

 The notation will be as follow:

-less than 8: no theory or theory not appropriated

-between 8 and 10: the theory is not linked to the rest of the demonstration

-between 10 and 12 : the empirical material used is weak

 -more than 12: a theory linked to the demonstration and good material
