About the Program
IntroductionThe e-Learning Course in Cultural Diplomacy & the Global Economy will focus on the global economy and its relationship to Cultural Diplomacy, the public sector, international politics, civil society, and the environment. The course will analyze the importance of combining perspectives from different fields and levels of society in discussing the challenges to the global economy, and on the understanding that "economic bridges" play an important role in promoting global peace and stability.
As the global financial crisis has demonstrated, the global economy influences all areas of our lives. It is intimately connected to issues such as global activity against climate change, extreme poverty, immigration and integration, healthcare, development, education, and culture & the arts. As such, discussion on the future of the global economy must incorporate perspectives from a diverse range of fields, including politics, civil society, and multiple academic disciplines, such as Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology.
