Course DescriptionEn un contexto internacional interdependiente y “pos” COVID 19, se abren interrogantes sobre cuál es el tipo de comunidad política más adecuada, reconociendo que los individuos y grupos pueden tener diversas pertenencias a comunidades locales, redes regionales y globales. Por ello, en este curso se analiza el proceso de globalización: conceptualización y debates. Particularmente se estudian los discursos en torno a la globalización y sus efectos en la seguridad internacional, la identidad, ciudadanía, derechos humanos y desarrollo. Igualmente, se da énfasis a los desafíos y oportunidades que plantea la mayor interdependencia en nuevos y viejos conflictos y amenazas, como el crimen organizado, amenazas asociadas al cambio climático, la lucha por recursos naturales, ciberseguridad y a las discusiones en torno a la migración internacional.
