SKSU 6254 GLOBALISATION AND REGIONALISATION

Synopsis
This course aims to present the main contemporary trends of globalisation and regionalisation by combining the theoretical and practical components. The course focuses on the opportunities and challenges presented by the transboundary exchanges on the global and regional scales. In issue-based discussion, students will investigate the drivers of globalisation and regionalisation, and how they relate to one another. These issues include (but not limited to) global governance, transnational crimes, economic integration and disintegration, gender, cyber security, environmental threats, and many more. The nexus of these trans-border economic and security issues will provide students with lively discussion on the processes of top-down (statebased) and bottom-up (civil society-based) interactions. Various paradigms and theoretical approaches will be considered, teaching students how to interpret contemporary trends from different points of view. At the end of the course, students will learn how to form policy responses towards a range of regional and global issues, using empirical variables in international affairs’ indexes.
