International Studies | Global Integration & Development
I203 | 12281 | Greene, L.S.


This course is designed to introduce students to a number of ideas
and institutions associated with international markets and
governance structures.  In particular, we will explore the history
of Western ideas associated with market activity, political systems,
and their interaction.  We will examine the social, cultural,
ecological, and political dimensions of the concepts of democracy,
development, dependency, sustainability, freedom, globalization, and
exploitation.  In the latter half of the course we will turn our
attention to particular cases and contexts in which these ideas and
institutions can be witnessed in action, or, as the saying goes, “on
the ground.”
