GOVT2440 - Globalisation and National Governance

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: John Joseph Mikler


It is often argued that we are entering a new era in which the existence of nation-states and the power of national governments to manage economic and social change are rapidly being eroded by globalisation. This unit will appraise the debates about the impact of globalisation and state power erosion. It will pay particular attention to different forms of global integration and to the interplay between domestic institutions and international pressures. There will be scope for comparing national responses to the changing global economic system.
