    Syllabus

    We live in an increasingly interdependent or 'globalised' world. This unit examines the causes of globalisation, and the effects that global forces have had (and are having) on contemporary social, economic, political and environmental events and developments. The unit also analyses key theories and ideologies of globalisation, and examines the rise of international civil society and global resistance movements.

    1. gained a basic understanding of the causes and effects of globalisation;

    2. developed their ability to understand current world events, by contextualising them in relation to relevant global developments and processes; and
