Description: A rapidly changing global economic and political system is a reality that our society is embedded in. The students of international area studies should understand the processes of globalization. The economic interests and political power of the actors that constitute the international system - sovereign national governments, multinational corporations, financial institutions, international organizations, and civil society - are crucial components to be examined in this course. After first introductory classes focusing on conceptual and empirical foundations of the current trade, monetary and financial systems, lectures and discussions will follow up on economic, political and social issues raised by deepening globalization - its impact on inequality, poverty, environment, resources and food. The course heavily focuses on analysing current debates.
