What is Globalization?

  • Introduction: Globalization on Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy[1]
  • Globalization in brief: Global Transformations web [2] or educational materials from the Levin Institute[3]
  • Globalisation in depth[4] (educational materials by the Charles University - selected topics from last year´s course)
  • Latest news from The Globalization website [5]
  • EU perspective [6]

What is case study?

Read more about case study development! And consider when case studies might be used - as a method of research...

"The case study is most useful for generating hypotheses, whereas other methods are more suitable for hypotheses testing and theory building."[7]

...or as a well developed method in teaching/learning[8]. In this course, it will serve as a tool for joint work on specific globalization theme.

Write it yourselves!

While case study research has its specifics, the writing process is similar to any other academic discourse.
