Credits: 3 credits
Students examine the development of transnational governance institutions and how they affect people with the least power in the world; but also of grass-roots social movements that have achieved transnational organization and that oppose the effects of global neo-colonialism. Students engage in critical examination of the social and cultural institutions and ideologies needed to sustain the current global capitalist order. Students explore major issues emerging from current arrangements in global political economy, such as world inequality and poverty, the detrimental effects of global capitalism on the environment, and its economic, political, and cultural-social crises.
