About the course
The course’s central themes concern the global division of resources together with the institutional framework and how these affect the state capacities of countries, as well as the possible moral and political responsibility that affluent countries or their citizens might have in relation to the non-affluent – whether there is any such responsibility and what form it might take. The course covers different positions within the contemporary discussion about these issues.
Admission to the course requires a minimum of 60 approved credits with a certain progression in one of the following Major Subjects: History with a Focus on European Studies, Human Rights, International Migration and Ethnic Relations, International Relations or Peace and Conflict Studies.
