Globalisation and Democracy

Module code: POPP 3405

Module description

This module is about the ways in which understandings of democracy are associated with the globalisation process by following approaches on politics, development and international political economy. It examines the different understandings that are given to these two concepts through the analysis of policy instruments and mechanisms in which state and non-state actors interrelate, with a particular focus on the Latin American and African contexts. It also considers the role of practitioner knowledge and expertise in building the linkages between democracy and globalisation.
