Global Issues and its Diversity
Globalization, Development, International Political Economy and Terrorism are words that have become part of our daily vocabulary. In the news you hear about civil wars, political crises and suicidal attacks. But how does this affect your own reality? Why, e.g., do your gasoline prices go up when there is a war thousands of miles away? In the globalized world that we are living in, it is highly important to not only be aware of, but also understand current global issues and their roots and consequences on your life, although they might appear far away from your own reality. That is why this class will give you an insight on current global events and how they affect your society. By that, this class wants to provide you with an amplified global-cultural view to support you in your future decision making process and to become an informed and aware person.
