Module overview

This module will examine the main points of contention regarding the South, its position in the international economy and changes that have occurred over the last few decades. Students will be asked to critically evaluate the reasons for the economic stasis that has occurred in some regions and the economic changes that have occurred in other regions. The objectives of the course are to understand how less developed countries have been, and are being integrated into the world system, to consider how the nature of the world system influences the form of integration, and to discuss alternative forms of integration that lead to more favourable developmental outcomes for LDC’s.
