News from Sep 25, 2015

As each year passes, the world becomes a smaller place. Airplanes, the Internet and the pervasive spread of western culture have created a world that is more interconnected than ever before. This process of Globalization is both powerful and polarizing, as it shapes economies, and the international political sphere. Despite this, it is poorly understood, and rarely given the attention and prominence it deserves in an in-depth study of global politics.

With the traces of Globalization leaving their marks almost anywhere one looks, there are many important areas for study and analysis. Firstly, this process needs to be concretely defined and then a framework needs to be established for identifying its presence and impacts. Then it is worth understanding how Globalization interacts with the traditional idea of the nation-state and global economies and cultures which are slowly eroding these ideas of sovereignty. As well, the outcomes of this process, both economically and environmentally need to be analyzed in order to fully understand its world-changing effects.

Through the Center for Global Politics module on Globalization students will receive an in-depth education on these important questions and leave with a significantly more extensive knowledge of these issues. As part of our East European Studies master’s program, international relations expert Prof. Andrey Makarychev will lead this program, bringing his wealth of knowledge to the fore. So sign up today, and don’t miss this unique opportunity to analyze and discuss one of the most powerful forces in global politics!
