In recent years, the TWSC had offered a five-day certificate course on globalization, which discusses the various perspectives, debates and issues on globalization. The course explores the economic, political and cultural dimensions of globalization with a multi-disciplinary approach. The TWSC designed and conducted the course in consultation with partner institutions and faculty to ensure that the content, methodologies, knowledge acquired, and skills developed are suited to the needs of the participants. People from the government, civil society organizations, academe, and the business sector have graduated from the workshop.
