POL 462 North-South Relations in a Globalized World

How can we best conceptualize and understand relationships between culturally, philosophically, and economically different and unequal states within the international system? Power relationships, conflict and cooperation within the international system change over time. This course explores North-South relations within the context of these changes, as well as the self-conceptualization and concerns of the global South.
