GLOBALISATION AND DEVELOPMENT

DST1DEV

2019

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Globalisation is a process by which distant regions are increasingly linked, shaping our lives and impacting on the fate of nations. In this subject students will explore world history by examining the process by which the wealthy countries expanded into, and influenced the rest of the world. We often think of globalisation primarily in terms of industry, trade and technology, but in this subject we will take a broader view, which includes the current problems of world poverty and conflict, environmental degradation and racism. Case histories from Latin America, Africa and Asia will be examined.
