Globalization, Migration and International Relations: Course Description

Professor Nazli Choucri taught the lecture course 'Globalization, Migration and International Relations' on the MIT campus, dividing the material into three key sections to offer students a multi-faceted perspective. In this free online OpenCourseWare, Professor Choucri provides an extensive reading list for the three-part curriculum. The course begins with the central study of globalization and its causes, effects and dimensions. In part two, students take a closer look at the movement of human populations, focusing on the basis and consequences of human migration. Related security issues--such as border control--are also covered. Part three examines how changes are made in the international domain, specifically in the context of international political economy and international relations theories. 'Globalization, Migration and International Relations,' from MIT's Political Science department, is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Materials for this OpenCourseWare include a reading list and essay questions for an exam. If you are interested in taking this class, visit the globalization and international relations course page.
