Module 10: Globalisation, Rising Powers and Emerging Markets

The course will provide students with an approach to the study of emerging markets/rising powers based on a number of interrelated aspects such as national development strategies, state-market relations, the underlying institutions and policies, and the relationships between the rising powers and the rest of the world. This approach provides an in-depth understanding of the possibilities and limitations of rising powers in relation to the impact of the international system and an understanding of the possibilities and limitations for countries in all regions of the world and at all stages of development due to the rising powers and emerging markets. The module forms the basis for further theoretical and practical work within the field in the project module of the semester, see Module 15.
