Political Science | Cont Pol Prob: Global Pol Econ
Y200 | 3389 | Dietz


This course explores globalization as it redefines politics.  We
begin by analyzing the concept of globalization and then move to
examine its political effects on governments, economies, societies
and cultures.  International in focus, this course will consider
global as well as local cases.  We will draw upon theoretical
knowledge and pragmatic experience to answer such questions as: Is
globalization a new phenomenon?  How does it affect developed and
developing countries?  What is the future of the nation-state and
democracy?

Controversial by its very nature, The Politics of Globalization
promises to generate engaging discussion and heated debate.
