SOC 516 - Globalization and DevelopmentCredits: (3)
Globalization is one of the most important features of the contemporary world, which describes a socioeconomic system of interdependence unprecedented in terms of scope and intensity. What is less clear and still under debate, however, is the nature and the consequences of globalization: Who has pushed it forward and who benefits from it? This course will review the process of globalization and critically examine the different perspectives on it. Students will better understand how globalization has influenced (and will change) our and other’s life and development.
