Political Geography

14 weeks Course


Starting with the geo-political situation of Canada, we examine the different elements that determine the power, influence and stability of nations – size, population, political system, resources, boundaries and ethnic composition. Through a consideration of international political hotspots, we further explore the reasons for the wealth and poverty of nations, including economic systems, trade, debt, and exploitation - domestic and foreign. We examine the roles of global actors including the United Nations and NGOs.
