The term "globalization" can be found in most current publications related to the study of society, culture, economics, finances etc. It is a common word in media and private conversations as it is often referred to in the context of "globalization of the world in which we live" or "the challenges of living in a global society" or "the benefits of the changes imposed by globalization". At the same time, the simple use of the word "globalization" may lead to numerous and passionate discussions since, for one sector of the debate, globalization is the process that will finally bring development to millions of people, while others may conclude that this process will only result in additional problems, especially for the poorest countries in the world. The present course will focus on the importance, advantages and disadvantages of the globalization and how it is affecting the life of millions of women, children and men in Latin America by looking at those changes beyond economic reforms that recently took place in most of the countries. In the course, we will analyze the more important process of social and economic integration as exemplified in NAFTA, MERCOSUR, etc., as well as both the institutional structures that support this integration (IMF, World Bank, OMC) and those organizations that oppose globalization. In addition, the impact of globalization for Latin America in areas such as economic development, human rights, migration, and environmental pollution will be analyzed in more detail through study cases.
