Globalization and International Development

This course provides a comprehensive study of the major concepts and theories necessary for a critical understanding of the socio-political-economic problems and possibilities facing Third World countries in their quest for development. While examining the domestic determinants of development, the course focuses on the role of international institutions and the dominant countries (United States, European Union, Japan) in shaping the policy options in developing countries, with particular attention to the process of globalization as a recent contributor to the problem of underdevelopment.
