ACADEMIC PROGRAM - WEEKLY DESCRIPTION

Week 1+2

 

In the past quarter of a century, high migratory fluxes have been an integral part of globalization. This seminar will explore how a number of (South Eastern) European countries, as well as countries in the Americas, have redesigned their model of governance and their public policies to manage the human and social diversities associated with immigration, attempting simultaneously to provide fundamental rights and equal consideration to everyone, while securing integrative trust. At the level of Political Theory, recent debates surrounding liberal nationalism, integrative and pluralist republicanism, multiculturalism and interculturalism, will be analyzed and discussed.

On the focus of discussions will be the phenomenon of (re-)nationalization, internationalization, transnationalization and globalization of capitalist nation-states. This phenomenon will be reflected by using different critical approaches to state and globalization. The seminar will be based on critical readings of selected articles and will offer some answers to the following set of questions: What is the role of nation-state in globalized “borderless” world? How the growth of supranational spaces has altered the role of state within capitalism? How to overcome statecentrism in social research? How does the construct of globalization functions as strategy of depolitization? How are the global phenomenon encoded on national state levels?
