The world is becoming a smaller place with each passing year. Global communications and transportation networks have conspired to create a more interconnected world than would have been thought possible just decades ago. This process, known as Globalization, is both powerful and controversial, reshaping and changing economies and the global political sphere. Nonetheless, it is poorly understood, and rarely given the attention and prominence it deserves in an in-depth study of global politics.
The marks of Globalization are apparent almost anywhere one looks, and within these, there are many important areas for study and analysis. Firstly, this process needs to be concretely defined and then its presence and impacts need to be established through a well thought-out framework. Then, it is worth understanding how Globalization interacts with the nation-state and how global economies and cultures are slowly eroding these traditional ideas of sovereignty. As well, the economic and environmental outcomes of this process need to be analyzed in order to fully understand its world-changing effects.
With the Center for Global Politics module on Globalization students will be enlightened on these important questions and leave with a significantly more in-depth base of knowledge on the topic. As part of our East European Studies master’s program, international relations expert Prof. Andrey Makarychev will lead this program, bringing his wealth of knowledge to the fore. Sign up today, and don’t miss this unique opportunity to find out more about this massive global shifts in the modern world.
