Course content

This degree integrates different disciplinary perspectives to analyse the key debates on the economics, political, social and environmental dimensions of globalisation:

Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and poverty or does the expansion of international trade in goods and services provide new opportunities for development countries?

How can we make sense of emergent trends such as fair trade, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and sustainable consumption?

Does globalisation call for a radical overhaul of existing international, national and local institutions?

Why is it so difficult to solve global environmental problems such as climate change?

We will consider not only the process of globalisation but also the counter-tendencies and resistance to globalisation and how these are played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
