The History of Globalization and International Relations

Insight into the relationship between what is called globalization and international politics is essential for understanding recent international history and, indeed, today's world.

It is the goal of this Open UvA-course to explore this relationship for the period since the 1860s. Lectures and readings will consider themes such as the emergence and transformation of the nation-state model; European expansion and modern imperialism; the era of the two world wars; the rise of the United States; the Cold War, decolonization, and the rise of a liberal-democratic order after 1945; the ebb and flow of globalization; migration; social, cultural, and ideological transfers and flows across borders.
