Description

This 'capstone' unit in International and Global Studies focuses on case studies of contemporary problems (e.g. wars, natural disasters, economic and diplomatic crises). Groups of students will track particular cases to analyse interactions between social, cultural, political and economic institutions (including governments, aid agencies, the United Nations and others) and informal networks at the domestic, regional and international levels. In doing so, they will acquire high-level competency in theories, ethics, and methodologies informing interdisciplinary, team-based assessments of global issues.
