PPR326: Globalization and Transnational Politics
Tutor: Dr. Ngai-Ling Sum
Globalization is often related to increased connectivity and integration in economy, politics, culture, and people in diasporas. Drawing from liberal and critical theories on globalization, this module first examines the rise of the neoliberal world order under the 'Washington Consensus', which mobilizes state and non-state actors (e.g., transnational corporations and NGOs) to rebuild the global economy. These changes have an uneven impact on class, ethnic and gender relations and have prompted the emergence of counter-hegemonic movements such as the Global Justice Movement and the World Social Forum. The rise of transnational political mobilization also involves migration. Uprooted migrants are increasingly organized through transnational diasporic networks that are engaged in both: a) hostland politics of citizenship and racism; and b) homeland politics of memory and transformation. One specific focus of this module is the rise of transnational and home-grown Jihadists along with the growth of far-right politics and 'racial supremacism' in and beyond Europe.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
