The term ‘Globalisation’ embraces a range of deeply transformative political, economic and social processes. Understanding these - or the meaning, significance and implications of globalisation - presents major theoretical and practical challenges for those working or intending to work in the realms of government, business, civil society or academia.

The Brunel MA not only equips students to understand globalisation, but also to think in an informed manner about questions of its ‘governance’: that is, how globalisation might be steered or developed in a politically and ethically satisfactory manner.

Aims

Students graduating from this programme will have knowledge and understanding not only of the key debates and perspectives upon globalisation, governance and international relations, but also of the different sectors of the emerging global political system: namely the state and other public authorities, business and institutions of global capital, and civil society and international non-governmental organisations.
