Research essay applying real world concepts

This is an essay question that has worked very well with my first year human geography students in a unit focused on globalisation. It involved finding a real world example and then applying concepts they have learned in the unit e.g. gglobalisation, equity, social division of labour, transnational organisation, resistance, alter- globalisation Students conduct web based research to identify a transnational labour organisation.

They ascertain one significant achievement of the organisation that demonstrate how they have resisted neoliberal globalisation and evaluate the success of this resistance. How has this organisation reshaped the social division of labour?
