HS/IR 338 - Spain and Morocco: Decolonization and Sustainable Development
In this course, the students will learn the basis of decolonial studies, specifically focused on socio-environmental issues and conflicts, and their consequences, such as nonviolent resistance, migrations, and international cooperation. Throughout the lectures, and with selected and fundamental readings, the class will discuss the very notion of Global north vis-á-vis Global South, the interactions between different actors within these two apparently seperated worlds; as well, the students will apply the theoretical concepts studied in class to the case study of hierarchical/ colonial relations established between Spain and Morocco during the 20th - 21st centuries.
