INTR71-350: Human Security and Global Development


This subject introduces you to the field of human security, global political economy and global development. You will examine global political economy theory by studying the elemental three: mercantilism, liberalism and Marxism. Human Security and Global Development also explores the more contemporary work of global political economy scholars who have both reinvigorated and challenged the elemental three theories with new ideas and critiques. The second part of the subject applies the field of global political economy to the pressing question of global development. How can the bulk of humanity be lifted beyond mere existence? Which structures of the global political economy are critical to global development and which of these are supporting or undermining these efforts? In this subject, you will gain advanced theoretical, historical and practical understanding of global development and the ability to employ the principles of global political economy in the pursuit of global development.
