Globalisation and Development
The global economy is experiencing an unprecedented shift in economic power from West to East, rapid technological transformation amid increasing turbulence and deep in-equalities between and within countries. This course provides an in-depth understanding of these issues through an innovative mix of teaching methods, combining conventional lectures and workshops as well as interactions with people from business, the public sector, non-government organisations (NGOs) and international organisations. As globalisation evolves, the private sector is emerging as a critical actor in development. Businesses are the driving force for the economy and can help to promote sustainable economic growth and reduce poverty. This course examines the key elements of business and international development and private-sector development. The course encourages independent thinking while providing the analytical and practical skills needed to understand globalisation processes, the role of business in development and how policymakers can interact with the private sector to promote development and the reduction of poverty.
