HIST3295 - Internasjonal økonomisk samtidshistorie
Economic globalization processes cannot only be observed for the most recent decades; rather they occurred also in earlier periods. This course will provide an overview about globalization and de-globalization during the last hundred years, i.e. covering the period between the outbreak of World War I and today. It will especially try to answer the following questions: How did economic globalization develop and what different periods can be observed during the period examined? What are the specific characteristics of these periods? Which factors caused globalization and de-globalization? Which conditions favored or hampered its development? What effects did globalization and de-globalization have in different respects? And what repercussions, in turn, did these effects have on the further development of globalization? We will further discuss, based on country case studies, why the economic effects of globalization and the reactions to globalization differed among different countries.
A candidate who passes this course is expected to have the following learning outcome according to the course curriculum, defined as knowledge and skills:
Should especially get an overview about periods of economic globalization and of economic de-globalization during the last 150 years as well as about their characteristics.
