Synopsis: The unit provides students with a theoretical and practical overview of some of the processes associated with globalisation. It builds on knowledge that students have acquired about how the contemporary world has evolved over the past half century. It is future oriented and considers the on-going forces that are currently driving the push to globalise and the forces that work to impede or retard globalisation. It does this in part by considering how organizations are likely to evolve at the international level while also looking locally at some of the domains that seem to be widely affected by the processes of globalisation.
