Co-manager, Bilingual teaching project in German and Spanish in cooperation with the Bavarian Virtual High School (VHB)

  • Economy and Society in Developing and Emerging Countries

The seminar deals with issues of development economics, taking a closer look at political, institutional and societal processes that characterize economies and societies in developing and emerging countries. Based on country case studies it discusses macroeconomic factors and aspects of material well-being as well as the role of ethnicity, history, gender norms and the political system.

  • International Business Relations

The seminar will examine bilateral and multilateral economic relations, and how they affect regional alliances, globalisation and the social and economic well-being of nations. International business and increased international trade often results in improved international relations, but it can also lead to disputes between countries (e.g. disagreements on tariffs, trade wars etc.). The seminar encompasses economic considerations as well as the role of politics, history and culture.

  • „Internationale Entwicklungen im 21. Jahrhundert – Wo steht Lateinamerika in der Weltpolitik?“// Desarrollos internacionales en el siglo XXI: Dónde se encuentra América Latina en la política mundial?

Die zunehmende globale Verflechtung von Wirtschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft prägt die heutige Zeit und stellt die Weltpolitik vor vielschichtige Herausforderungen. Der Kurs befasst sich mit den zentralen internationalen Entwicklungen im 21. Jahrhundert und arbeitet für jedes Phänomen (wie z.B. Migrationsbewegungen, strukturelle Ungleichheit, nachhaltige und menschliche Entwicklung, digitale Transformation, organisierte Kriminalität, (Des-)Integrationsbewegungen wie Brexit oder geopolitische Spannungen zwischen den USA und China) die Rolle und Interessen Lateinamerikas heraus. Dabei werden zu Beginn jeden Moduls theoretische Modelle/Überlegungen und Messinstrumente sowie aktuelle Daten zu deren fundierten Analyse vermittelt und daraufhin an länder- und regionenspezifischen Fallbeispielen angewandt.
