ENV 205 - Globalization, Trade and the Environment

New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge III.

Course Description: Ever since the end of the Cold War the social, political, and economic forces have coalesced to reshape the world. One of the most striking features that has emerged since then, on the world stage, is the trend towards global economic integration. Globalization, in spite of its popular and common usage, is very much a contested concept. Some emphasize the increasing interconnections between different players' economic, political, and cultural fields while others stress the notion that globalization is essentially an effort to undermine the national sovereignty and authentic identities of nation states by transitional actors.
