PPR336: Africa and Global Politics
Tutor: Julie Hearn
African states are among the poorest, most artificial in the world. This means their relations with the global system have a critical impact on African politics from the global to the local level. The course has three main aims.
This course provides a historical and thematic introduction to the issues facing Africa in the international system today. The course is divided into four sections. The first section focuses on the impact of colonialism on shaping the economy, the state and perceptions of race. The second section examines the first four decades of independence. The third and fourth sections look at key contemporary issues such as HIV/AIDS and actors such as China and South Africa.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and workshop (1 hour) weekly.
