Recent changes in technology, political arrangements, and social and economic systems have been so rapid and far-reaching that they are said to have ushered in a new era of globalisation. Sometimes presented as inevitable, globalisation has become the focus of considerable contest of ideas, policies and practices. This course examines the origins and nature of globalisation, and analyses its implications for education.
