`The world is constructed, and globalization is happening`.

Please note that your essay must show (a) critical understanding of relevant theoretical ideas, e.g. debates about ontologies, epistemologies, quantitative/qualitative research, and (b) critical understanding of relevant studies of globalization. This is simply to ensure that you engage with both of these important bodies of literature, such that your essay handles both theory and application – a crucial skill for doing well in politics courses at university.
