The aim of this unit is to explore the economic, social and political impact of globalisation on France. Theoretical and historical frameworks will be applied by students to specific national or regional case studies to allow them to assess the multi-dimensional impact of globalisation on national economies and on individual firms.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
* evaluate the nature and impact of globalisation on France;
* apply knowledge to analyse the opportunities and limitations globalisation represents for different regions and countries;
* critically evaluate the link between economic, social and political global developments;
* discuss issues raised in French.
Skills in critical analysis, conceptual thinking, precision in the use of written and spoken language, exercise of independent judgement, reasoned argument, teamwork and the planning/conduct/reporting of non-quantitative research are developed and assessed in this unit. Language skills are also developed in this unit.
* The political and institutional frameworks of globalisation, at national and international levels;
* Rival national conceptions of globalisation and interpretations of its effects;
* National and European adaptation strategies;
* Sectoral patterns of internationalisation (including inward and outward FDI);
