World Sociology & Globalisation
This section begins by providing an introductory investigation on world Sociology and globalisation, before moving onto consider ideas of ‘development’, ‘underdevelopment’ and global inequality, by looking at measuring development, social development, The Human Development Index and underdevelopment and the origins of dependency. Next we offer ideas for the classroom on globalisation and its influence on societies, by considering globalisation and homogenisation, and the myth of globalisation. Next we turn to looking at The World Trade Organisation, Transnational Corporations (TNCs), views on world trade, strategies for global development, and the war on terror. Finally we offer resources on education and development, health and development, and gender and development.
