Course Summary

This course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach, making UEA the perfect place to help you gain that all-important competitive edge. The process of globalization is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of this process and its implications for international development are hotly debated and you’ll tackle key questions including: Is globalization leading to increasing international inequality and poverty, or does the expansion of international trade in goods and services provide new opportunities for developing countries? How can we make sense of emergent trends such as fair trade, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and sustainable consumption? Does globalization call for a radical overhaul of existing international, national and local institutions? And why is it so difficult to solve global environmental problems such as climate change? You’ll also consider the counter-tendencies and resistance to globalization and how these are played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We’ll provide you with the tools to critically analyse the process of globalization and its impact on international development.
