Synopsis

Students examine globalisation and assess its implications for the governance of the business enterprise, nation states, and relations between business and government. The unit also examines the difficulties that globalisation creates for nations and multinational enterprises in both the emerging and developed world, the open markets, and the policy responses proposed to balance economic, social and political costs.

Objectives

The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • identify major political, economic and regulatory forces that underpin the globalisation process
  • critically analyse how international political and economic developments are shaping the structure of global institutions
  • evaluate how the globalisation of rules can become a source of competitive advantage for firms, governments and non profit organisations
  • identify solutions that would enhance the sovereignty of ordinary citizens over the globalisation process.
