In the midst of a global financial crisis, a global climate crisis, and a global food crisis, wouldn't you like to know more about how the global economic system works, and how we got here?
Understanding Globalisation is an exciting short course for people interested to learn more about globalisation, global economics and their impacts on people and the environment. Understanding Globalisation brings together 15 Australian and international experts in politics, economics and development to support participants in exploring the complexities of globalisation.
Over 10-weeks, Understanding Globalisation examines the philosophies, agreements and institutions of the global economic system and the current, interconnecting financial, food and climate crises in an approachable, easy-to-follow way.
Through lectures, workshops and other activities, the course examines the relationships between the global economy and the current global crises and equips participants to track future developments in globalisation and the global economic system.
Presented by Global Trade Watch, the course will run in Melbourne (Carlton) on Monday evenings from April 14 to June 15 2009.
