Globalization processes have been affecting every nook and corner of the world. We are all fascinated by the mushrooming of transnational companies; the increasing cross-boundary flows of resources as well as the increasing competition among cities. Resource becomes a keen issue due to the growth of population, trade and economy in the age of globalization. Good management of resources will thus be both global and local concerns.
This course focuses on the interaction of man and environment in a geographical context. By adopting different perspectives, a variety of resource issues ranging from natural resources to economic and human resources will be examined. The course will be divided into two parts. The first part will be the discussion of basic concepts of globalization and resource issues in the society. The second part will be an issue-based analysis of different resource issues that affect lives in modern societies, particularly in this age of globalization. Various cases in the real world will be analyzed. This course will help students to broaden their views in understanding the importance and implications of resource issues in both developing and developed countries.
