Green Lanes Global Village

Synopsis
Poverty, displacement and sustainability are just some of the issues faced by the world today in the context of international development. Using case-studies from around the world, this course explores the nature of some of these issues and contextualises responses to them in light of changing global political and economic circumstances. This programme concentrates on Greek Cypriots and Ethiopians, just two of the migrant groups which have settled in London to avoid economic and political conflict and persecution since the 19th Century. Although living in the same place, these groups are shown to be at very different stages of becoming established and integrated.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
