Course Description

Course number may be repeated for credit when the topics vary. This course examines change in world politics and economics that are producing "globalization," and asks what this means for various countries and regions of the world. Is globalization a threatening force that should be contained, or should it be celebrated and promoted? How is it affecting prospects for world peace, democracy, and human welfare? Who are the winners and losers? Much of current discussion and debate over globalization aims at taking stock of the worldwide political and economic changes that have been unleased in the last 20 years, and assessing the normative and political implications thereof. Course materials are organized to give students an introduction to some of these dilemmas and debates. Students in the class should gain a better sense of how the changes underway affect jobs, livelihoods, and democracy in the US and in other parts of the world. The goal of the class is to equip students to learn more about these issues in the future, so that they can participate in discussions and policy choices as informed citizens.
