Globalisation, Governance & Development

The focus of this course is on the nature of the global economy, how it is governed and the alternatives articulated by social movements and academic institutions.

During the course we will explore the diversity of paradigms in heterodox economics, emerging thinking in the World Academy of Art and Science, post-GDP debates, different modes of long-wave thinking, global green transformation and proposals for radical change. 

This course will help participants understand the global debates about alternatives to the current crisis-ridden global economic order.
