Amsterdam and Brussels: Global Governance in the Contemporary World

As globalization continues to intensify connections between peoples and nations, the value of international institutions created during the 20th century is being increasingly questioned. In this course, students will visit Brussels and The Hague to obtain a first-hand understanding of how bodies such as the European Union, NATO, the International Criminal Court, and the International Court of Justice operate and function. An opportunity to reflect on Canada and its place in the world will be offered through a trip to Ypres, the site of one of the most famous battlefields of World War I. Through this study tour, students will gain first-hand knowledge by which to comprehend issues ranging from the current covoid-19 pandemic to Brexit, climate change, and war crimes.
