INGS1004: The Making of the Global Order

This unit studies globalisation since the early modern period by tracing the gradual and uneven emergence of the world as a semi-integrated economic and political unit constituted first by empires and semi-autonomous zones, and then by nation-states, held together loosely by global institutions and international agreements.
