    Course description

    The multi-faceted economic, social and political processes for which `globalisation' is now the shorthand have transformed relations between and within all countries and present new challenges for achieving sustainable development in the poorer countries of the world.  The dramatic growth in cross-border flows of trade and investment, combined with the communications revolution, has affected fundamentally the ways in which 'developed' and `developing' countries relate to each other. While offering new opportunities for raising living standards worldwide, globalisation also seems to have compounded experiences of uneven development. These changes are of sufficient significance to require a fundamental shift in our analytical and policy approaches to achieving national and international development goals.
