The current scenario demands critical engagement, at both the theoretical and practical levels, on the part of the sensitive community organizer. Working from a pro-poor, pro-marginalized groups perspective, the community organizer needs to work with communities towards extending the spaces for engagement with the state, and resisting the multiple onslaughts on their rights and entitlements. There is a need to evolve alternate models of development that are pro-poor and also environment-friendly. It is with these challenges that TISS Guwahati CCODP, SSW is offering this two-year MA Social Work programme in Community Organization and Development Practice
