Power and Money in Global Society (INGS1001)


Globalisation challenges our ability to conceptualise and respond to change and increasing levels of integration. This unit focuses on the changing relationship between nation states, international organisations and globalising markets. It provides (a) an historical perspective on this process; (b) an introduction to the concepts needed to describe these different levels of organisation; (c) a case based approach to the conflicts that arise, the way they are being addressed and the systemic challenges of inequality and sustainability.
