Content

This unit explores key phenomena that have shaped the way in which the Global North (in which Australia sits) and the Global South relate to each-other: colonialism, capitalism and development. In doing so, the unit introduces students to important areas of political theory, including international political economy, post-colonialism, and development theory. The unit draws extensively on case studies from Africa and Latin America, with some case studies also from Asia.
