GLOBALISATION AND GOVERNANCE
Credit points: 30
In this subject we examine how globalisation is understood in the context of international relations, including the institutional architecture and policy implications of globalisation in different issue-areas, and the ethical challenges posed by these shifts in global politics. The subject examines these themes in three parts. In Part A, we explore the theoretical debates about globalisation, focussing specifically on understanding global governance and conceptualising the role of nation-states and other actors in the contemporary world. In Part B, we take a look at the main issue-areas to explore the nature and extent of contemporary globalisation and the implications of these processes for governance within and between states. In Part C, we address the main ethical challenges posed by contemporary globalisation, focussing on the problem of poverty, environmental degradation, and the impacts of globalisation on democracy.
