This course wants to offer a global introduction to World Politics and Economics studying different theories and perspectives explained by different authors since 1991. Of course, a historical introduction is needed to understand how the world was built, as we know it now. Using a short history of Europe and its technological hegemony we will study how Europeans conquered and organized the world.
By studying the International Relations under the Cold War students will cover how two superpowers organized two areas of influence creating two minor globalizations.
In the last part of the course, students will revise the major perspectives on Globalization and how it
is shaped everyday by the interactions of millions of people.
