Policies, cultural trends and organisations are now intimately and broadly inter-connected across the world. The primary goal of this Master’s programme is to generate a critical understanding of these connections. Covering a range of theories, and focusing on new institutionalisms, the programme will provide the students with a toolkit to analyse social, political and cultural forces shaping our global world. Programme faculty includes active researchers from the University of Tampere. In addition, the programme co-operates with partner universities from Europe and USA.
