Content of the lesson

This lesson shows that globalisation is not a uniform process by introducing the dynamic processes of homogenisation, fragmentation and glocalisation. It is concerned with how poverty is interlinked with processes of economic globalisation. Additionally, the lesson deals with how "observation" constitutes a useful method in qualitative social research, for example when looking at situations of everyday life.
