Global Economy and Nation-State


What is the global economy? What are nation states? And what is the relationship between the global economy and the nation state? This seminar first examines the historical formation of nation states and then reflects on their performance and integrity since the end of the cold war, keeping in mind the rise of neoliberalism, globalization, regional trade blocs such as the European Union and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and Covid-19. Special attention is given to issues of sovereignty and democracy, the role of international financial organizations, international industry associations, institutions, and the way nation states are likely to evolve in the coming decades.
