Thematic Section 4 on Human Rights and Globalisation deals with the impact of globalisation on human rights and the role of human rights in mitigating the effects of globalisation. The first week is devoted to an introduction to the role of the State and economic institutions like the World Bank and WTO on globalisation as well as the role of civil society and NGOs. The week also looks at the relationship between business and human rights in the context of globalisation and explores issues of corporate social responsibility. The second week is devoted to learning the basics for the development and management of a specific project on Globalisation and Human Rights in China.
