Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Few terms have been used in recent years by politicians, the public and science as inflationary as the concept of "globalization". Hardly a day goes by without that political and economic decision-makers name "global competition" as a challenge of our time and legitimze national interests. The public discussion makes clear: With the integration of economic, political, social and cultural processes the concept of "space" is far from being obsolete. The opposite is the case: Supranational business clubs (EU, NAFTA) also experience a boom as the sub-national regionalism. The facilitated mobility of goods, money, information and people is countered by the foreclosure of boundaries as shown in modern border regime against unwanted migrants.
