Postgraduate Students with an interest in global issues will be provided with the tools to critically analyse the process of globalisation and its impact on international development. Study will be informed by case studies, theory, workshops, seminars, debates and forms of media.
The process of globalisation is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of the process and its implications for international development are hotly debated:
Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and global poverty or does it provide new opportunities for developing countries?
What is the role of local and international politics?
Has globalisation led to an erosion of national sovereignty or is it contributing to the spread of democracy internationally?
Does globalisation require a radical overhaul of the existing international political and institutional system?
How can global environmental challenges best be met?
This Masters 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.
