About

The programme in Germany is jointly offered by the University of Kassel and the Berlin School of Economics; two German academic institutions with special expertise on global governance, macroeconomics, and trade union strategies.

Programme Structure

The focus of the Masters programme in “Labour Policies and Globalisation”? is on the challenges for labour posed by corporate decisions on investments across nations, by predominantly supply-side oriented macroeconomics, and by neo-liberal rules for trade and finance at a global level. Discussion of the adequacy of alternative policies for labour is a central element throughout the programme.
