This KD201 module focuses on globalisation and its impact on societies, with an emphasis on economic globalisation.
It clarifies the concept of globalisation, described as a process of networking involving ICTs, trade, migration, investment and international finance, and outlines the resulting economic, political and cultural impacts.
The module aims to examine the benefits and costs this 'world-integrating force' has, reflecting on issues such as the role of global value chains on policy space, growth, environment, gender, labour; the impact on geopolitics and trade policy.
The module is meant to challenge common notions of international and global affairs, inspiring students to broaden their interest in globalisation as citizens of the world.
