  1. Week 1: The Nation-State and Globalisation: Retreat or Transformation? 27 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. A central issue in the entire globalisation debate is how structural changes in the global economy are impacting upon national states. Is the state in retreat? How are changes in the global political economy shaping the development of the institutional structures of economic policymaking within individual states? In what ways can globalisation be said to open up a political space for state managers to pursue new strategies of management? The controversy on the changing relationship between the state and the global market forms the starting point for investigations of new forms of governance and new political structures.

         

        • What is meant by the 'retreat of the state'?
        • What are the main features of the competition state? Do we live in a world dominated by competition states?
        • How useful is the idea of depoliticisation and what is the relationship between depoliticisation and globalisation?
        • How does our understanding of the 'historical structural' relationships between capital and the state impact upon our analysis of contemporary processes?
        • Can we legitimately distinguish between the state's domestic and international objectives?

  2. Week 2: The New Architecture of Global Governance I: The WTO 43 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. The establishment of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in 1995 represented the most dramatic change in the institutional structures of global economic governance since the creation of the IMF and the World Bank fifty years earlier. The WTO has attracted considerable controversy in its short life. Particularly controversial has been the use of this organisation to enforce global standards of intellectual property rights protection and investment liberalisation. Within this session we seek to go beyond the crude polemics that have been directed against the WTO and examine the key characteristics of this institution and the broader global political and economic project/trends that lay behind the creation of this institution.

         

        • What are the main differences between the WTO and the GATT?
        • How convincing are McMicheal's arguments about the world-historical context out of which the WTO emerged and the role of the WTO in securing global market rule?
        • What is the significance of the TRIPs agreement and what were the respective roles of private and public agents in authoring this agreement?

  3. Week 3: The New Architecture of Global Governance II: World Bank 39 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. The World Bank plays a critical role in the lives of billions of people across the third world. Financial support from the Bank constitutes such a high proportion of government revenue in many third world countries that the bank is better conceived of as being a part of the state rather than an external actor. In order to understand what the term 'development' means in the contemporary world and the prospects for development globally it is vital that we understand the World Bank's contemporary developmental project. In order to develop an understanding of this project we must not only understand the bank itself but how other institutions (such as the UNCTAD) have come to be integrated into this project.

         

        • What are the key features of the World Bank's contemporary project and how does this project differ from the previous "Washington Consensus" project?
        • What does the concept of ownership mean within the contemporary global development project?
        • Do you support the World Bank's project? Does this project represent the best chance for the global poor?

    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. Globalisation and regionalisation are the dominant processes in the contemporary global political economy, and many commentators see the latter as the more robust trend of the two. There is a lively debate in political science the relationship between globalisation and regionalisation, as well as on the forms that contemporary regionalism takes and the impact of regionalism on contemporary world order.

         

        • How can we explain the emergence of regionalism?

  5. Week 5: Globalisation and Democracy I: How does globalisation affect national democracies? 26 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. The impact of globalisation on national political systems has already been touched upon in the previous sessions that focused on the development of the state and the emergence of supranational surveillance mechanisms. In this session we focus directly upon the impact of structural changes in the global political economy on national democratic systems. Different models of democracy are introduced, before we proceed to ask which model might best represent the dominant discourses and practices of democracy under conditions of globalisation. Jayasuryia's work on anti-politics will be intergrated into our dissussion of the domiant contempoary model of democracy. We are then in a position to ask whether the dominant understanding is appropriate or indeed significantly limited with reference to the substantive issues raised in the context of other models of democracy. We shall also consider how globalisation relates to the rise of idenity politics and the potential pathologies that are associated with idenity politics.

         

        • Is it possible to identify a dominant model of democracy which most appropriately reflects the current phase of globalisation?
        • What are the criticisms of limited democracy under conditions of globalisation?
        • How ought we to conceptualise the relationship between economic and political freedom?
        • What are the potential dangers associated with the rise of identity politics?

    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. How has globalisation changed the nature of work? What has the impact of global corporate restructuring (the transition from Fordism to Post-Fordism) been on workers? As states have come under pressure to attract FDI, can the state be expected to protect workers' rights? Why have wages stagnated in some of the most dynamic national economies (US) over the last two decades? As production is globalised and the working class is locked into the global economy, is a global labour movement conceivable? These are some of the questions that we will consider this week.

        • What are the new challenges and opportunities facing working class movements under globalisation?
        • What practical problems are hampering the development of an effective global labour movement?
        • What are the new patterns of vulnerability and opportunity associated with the establishment of a global post-Fordist production regime?
        • Does the idea of a working class with a common set of interests retain any validity at national or a global level?
        • What if anything ought to be done to end long term stagnation of wages for lower skilled workers in core capitalist states?

  8. Week 8: Globalisation and Welfare 36 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. A key set of debates in both the academic and policy-making arenas concerns the impact of globalisation on national welfare systems. In its early stages the debate was dominated by concerns about the capacity of Western European States to maintain the levels of taxation necessary to support comprehensive welfare systems. More recent contributions to the debate have focused less on levels of spending and more on how welfare state spending is being reconfigured (not reduced) to enhance competitiveness in a more integrated global economy. The debate has also moved beyond the Western European welfare states and there is a growing literature on the effects of globalisation on systems of welfare provision globally. The core readings for this session reflect the need to analyse the development of welfare systems globally.

         

        • Are the needs of capital and human beings compatible?
        • Is globalisation creating fiscal pressures that threaten to undermine the validity of the European Welfare State?
        • How compelling are Jayasuriya's arguments about the anti-politics of the emerging global workfare regime?
        • How useful is the concept of the Workfare state in helping us understand contemporary processes of welfare reform

  9. Week 9: Globalisation and Gender 33 items
    1. Topic and Questions 1 item
      1. Socio-Economic change is always gendered in that its impact on men and women is never identical. In this session we focus upon the gendered impact of globalisation and neo-liberal transformation. The differential impact of global restructuring on women occupying different social and geographical spaces within global value chains will be considered through an analysis of the writings of Perrons, Barrientos and Elias. We also consider the work of Spike Peterson on the hidden importance of 'reproductive' labour in global political economy

         

        • Overall can globalisation be said to have had a beneficial effect on women in the developed and the developing world?
        • In what ways does Peterson's work challenge conventional understanding of globalisation and political economy more broadly?

What are logics underpinning neo-liberal conceptions of the environment?

         

        • Can the needs of capital and the environment be reconciled?
