We are the students of Globalism POI3353 at the University of Middlesex in the Department of Law and Politics. Our blog postings look at issues relevant to our current global political economy. We are interested in the emergence of global inequalities, persistent poverty and depressed living conditions, unemployment, debt and more. We aim to identify how global issues put pressure on local lives in these blog postings. We hope that they educate and inspire you. Thank you!
