Globalization is a process that no human being can speed up, slow down or stop. But that doesn’t mean people won’t try.
Governments and citizens across the world either try and benefit from globalization (and try to limit its negative effects) or try to avoid it.
On this course you’ll learn about some of the reasons why people are either pro or anti globalization. You’ll discover why some governments and countries choose boundaries and demarcation and others choose integration.
Those who who would like selected, organized readings about current events.
Any B.A. level in these fields is an asset; it is not at all required.
Every learner unhappy with simple truths is welcome.
