Glocal Justice and Peacebuilding

Instructor: Toh Swee-Hin

This course seeks to provide an overview of the relationship between conflicts and social justice at local and global levels as well as peacebuilding initiatives to transform such conflicts in both South and North contexts.  It identifies structural violence or social and economic inequalities and injustices as one of the root causes of global and local (glocal) conflicts  and also explores strategies whereby nations and their citizens can live together with justice and compassion to build a culture of peace through personal and social action. Drawing  on case studies in diverse regions in the Global South, four  specific themes or sectors will be critically examined, including paradigms of development and globalization, the  rural poor, women and children, and indigenous peoples.
