Global Processes and Institutions
The current period of globalization dates from 1972, during which flows of people, capital, goods and services and knowledge have intensified to create a truly global system of economics and politics. But globalization remains controversial, with new conflicts emerging over whether to continue to globalize and between those who have benefited and those who have not benefited from global flows. As technology and politics continue to reshape, extend or block globalization, constant innovation in policies, laws, administration, and organizations is required. Students who pursue a certificate in Global Processes and Institutions choose from courses in law, political science, sociology, urban planning, African studies, management, and more. They will acquire practical and analytic competency so as to better prepare our local and global institutions for an increasingly interconnected, dynamic world.
