Glocal Magazine Launch Event 2016- Refugees and host communities, a global perspective

February 19, 2016

On February 19th, 2016, we launched our annual magazine in an event taking place at Yeffet 83, Jaffa's young adults community center. Nearly 100 participants gathered to discuss the relationship between refugees and their host communities, and to learn different perspectives of academics, and professional speakers from the field,  

We thank former MK Nitzan Horowitz, Dr. Tali Kritzman Amir, Ms. Ophira Ben Shlomo, and Glocal Student Silvain Ruhmaya for speaking, and to our dear guests for attending and presenting their views on the topic. 

Development and Global Health: A Critical Approach to Theory, Policy and Practice

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2020

Using case studies drawn largely but not exclusively from Sub-Saharan Africa, this course explores the challenges and complexities of delivering health in under-resourced settings. Over the past sixty years, various development models and policies have been applied locally and globally. We will critically examine the theory and practice that underlies what has become ‘global health’ within an evolving development framework.

Globalization and Organizations

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2015

The course reviews both issues - globalization and organizations – while focusing on those topics that link between the two. It discusses how organizations serve as the carriers of globalization processes: how, while expanding their activities worldwide, organizations proliferate social procedures, establish isomorphic structures, and diffuse cultural patterns. The course also reviews how, on the other hand, globalization processes encourage the formation of organizations and determine their shape worldwide.
