Global and global politics
Globalization
x stretching of social political and economic activities across political frontiers so that events,
decisions and activities in one region of the world come to have a significance for individuals
and communities in distant regions of the globe.
x The intensification or the growing magnitude of our interconnectedness. Ex SARS virus, world
trade.
x Accelerating pace of global interactions and process as the evolution of the worldwide systems
of transport and communication increases the rapidity or velocity with which ideas, news,
goods,information, capital, and technology move around the world. ex.call centers in India
x growing extensity,intensity, and velocity of global interactions is associated with a depending
enmeshment of the local and global in so far as local events may come to have global
consequences, creating collective awareness or consciousness of the world as a shared social
space that is globality or globalism.
x Hyperglobalists suggest the demise of the sovereign nation-state as global forces undermine the
ability of governments to control their own economies and societies.
x Sceptics reject the idea of globalization as so much 'gloaloney', argue that states and geopolitics
remain the principal forces shaping world order.
x Time- space compression- shrinking world- in which sources of even very local developments
from employment to ethnic conflict may be traced to distant conditions or decisions.
x Deterritorialization: as social, political, and economic activities are increasingly 'stretched'
across the globe, they become in a significant sense no longer organized solely according to a
strictly territorial logic.
x A 'shrinking world' implies that sites of power and the subjects of power quite literally may be
continents apart.
x Internationalization refers to growing independence between states, the very idea of
internationalization presumes that they remain discrete national units with clearly demarcated
borders.
x Regionalization can be conceived as the intensification of patterns of interconnectedness and
integration among states which share common borders or are geographically proximate as in the
European Union.
x Violence has always been central to globalization whether in the form of the 'new imperialism'
of the 1890s or the current war on global terror'.
x Constitutions are important because they establish the location of legitimate political authority
within a policy and the rules which inform the exercise and limits of political power
x Sovereignty involved the rightful entitlement to exclusive, unqualified and supreme rule within
a delimited territory.
x As krasner, recognizes, the Westphalian system has for many states been little more than a form
of organized hypocrisy.
x Great divide is treating political life as having two quite seperate spheres of action, the domestic
and the international, which operate according to different logics with different rules, actors,
and agendas
x global politics, is the concept that focusses our attention upon the global structures and
processes of rule making, problem-solving, and the maintenance of security and order in the
world system
x Global polity within which “interests are articulated and aggregated, decisions are made, values
