Course Globalisation & Sustainable Development UHasselt

The interdisciplinary course Globalisation and Sustainable Development (formerly North-South), consists of a series of lectures and debates by (international) experts on contemporary topics in a variety of domains. These topics are approached from a global relations perspective and focus on 3 concepts: globalisation, sustainability and development.

The lectures make attendants aware of the importance of context, culture, history and experience in knowledge creation and (inter)national development strategies and practices. The course aims to provide a broad, multidisciplinary understanding of contemporary global issues while at once stimulating students’ (self)reflective and respectful attitude towards other cultures. In an ever globalising world, these are important social but also employability skills.

In the fall of 2021, this elective course will cover the topic “Imagining (a) post-pandemic future(s)”. From various disciplines, we will reflect on globalization from the current COVID-19 pandemic and the possible futures. The emphasis is on the global dimension, where globalization and the ‘South’ is central.

This course is an elective course open for all students. Also external people can join the sessions, free of charge.
