We are increasingly living in a faster and smaller world. Globalization has radically changed our daily life for better or worse. Understand the nature of this gigantic transformation of social structures and cultural zones.

Through lectures and discussions, we will consider answers to key questions such as:

  • What is the essence of globalization?
  • What are the origins and consequences of globalization?
  • Is free trade good for development?
  • How serious is globalization backlash?
  • Is globalization undermining democracy and the nation-state?
  • How has globalization changed the gender role?
  • What does it mean to be a world citizen?
