Please note we are changing our name to the School of Global Development from 1 August 2023, as we mark our 50th Anniversary. About This Course The process of globalisation 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 globalisation 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 globalisation 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 globalisation 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 globalisation and its impact on international development. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
