This module will take a look at the regions of Latin America, MENA, and Asia to give you an overview of some key contemporary global issues.
MENA: You will examine the fault lines and sources of tension and instability in the MENA region and then progress to a geopolitical focus on the region (alliances and rivalries and the role of regional and global actors).
Latin America: Latin America is witnessing a surge in economic activity at a time when politics in the region has never been more interesting. The implications of this on global trade and relations are fascinating and of central importance to understand. This section zooms in on the most salient developments in the region, their background, and their impact on business and politics in Latin America and beyond.
Contemporary India and China: It is beyond debate that China and India are of fundamental importance to the global economy, but many aspects of their geopolitics and trade policy remain misunderstood. Here you examine the practical aspects of contemporary China and India, which are essential if we are to make sense of current events and developments in the region.
