This introductory course is designed for social science and humanities students and those interested in pursuing more advanced political economy courses. Globalization and World Politics introduces the theoretical and practical issues associated with the radical global processes that are now affecting human life locally and globally. The interdisciplinary readings emphasize the political-economic, cultural, institutional, technological, and ecological implications of globalization and allow students to evaluate whether these processes pose opportunities or challenges to individuals, societies, and the global community.

The fundamental concepts and questions of political economy are introduced to students as they read the works of major political and economic thinkers.

POEC 393 discusses a number of debates about the best ways to 'compete,' many of which rely on the 'market' or co-operative and state-aided industrial strategies. Students learn to analyze these broad issues and formulate policy-related initiatives for Canadian cases.
