GS 4010 - Global Society: Structures and Stakeholders
This course provides students with an introduction to the major actors, structures, and issues n contemporary global society. Moving beyond a state-centric view of the global landscape, the course considers the values, interests, and ideas of a variety of stakeholders—including businesses, corporations, institutions, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and grass-roots initiatives—in order to assess some of the ways in which these actors both compete and cooperate for opportunities and resources. Students will apply relevant concepts to their own personal and professional experiences so as to gain a better understanding of how global issues and actors at a variety of levels impact their work and how their work constitutes an important part of global society.
