The course analyzes globalization as an economic, political, social, and cultural phenomenon. It seeks to understand the effects of globalization on the gap between developed and developing countries; how it potentially intensifies inequality within countries; its impact on the quality of democratic governance and how it shapes the identity of local populations.
