 Summer School on Globalization 3.0:

 Production & Consumption

 

2 - 9 July, 2016

Whether we date the beginning of globalization to ancient times, the Middle Ages, the industrial revolution era or the post-World War II period, it is obvious that in the past few decades globalization has had a profound impact on business, finance, politics, culture and last but not least the consumption patterns of citizens of both the developed and developing countries. One result has been new production modes and delivery networks that make it increasingly difficult to understand where all the consumer goods are being made, who are the investors, which forces shape their final price and which countries bear the environmental costs associated with their production.

Are you curious to find out how many global companies mislead their customers? 

Do you want to learn more about the positive and negative aspects of outsourcing in relation to consumer goods?

Would you like to analyze the latest trends in the global food industry to understand whether we will have enough food to eat in the years to come?

Are you fascinated by new technologies such as 3D printing and do you wonder whether they will change the course of globalization?

Do you like to travel, meet new people and gain new experience? Would you like to spend a week in one of Europe’s most admired cities?

 

"I enjoyed the stay at Prague, thanks to a helpful and happy staff who facilitated our classes and stay. A view of current issues of public interest, from Prague, multiple facets of EU enlargement, the role of NGO's in mitigating the various crises in the region and the consequences of Globalization - all were explored in a format that was easy to absorb, in a friendly atmosphere. I hope the school can draw more students from India to understand and participate in debates that could broaden their perspective and improve the quality of discussions, back home. This school can prepare students particularly in Social Science, to identify what they may want to pursue . All of this while getting to know Prague in ways more than just touristy, and the opportunity to meet students from all over Europe"
