This unit examines contemporary processes of globalisation. It investigates cultural, economic, and political aspects of globalisation from a distinctively sociological perspective. Theories and data related to globalisation are also applied to world-transforming trends in areas such as immigration, population, technology, human rights, civil society, and democracy. Particular attention is given to the study of both pro- and anti- globalisation movements.
