Scope & concerns

  • Mapping the ‘New Globalization’
    The new globalization can be mapped as trends in trade, finance, international institutions, hegemony, inequality, social movements also struggles, cultural changes, and ecological dynamics. Arguably the twenty-first-century momentum of globalization is markedly different from twentieth-century globalization also involves new geography of trade, weaker United States hegemony and a trend towards growing multipolarity. Like a giant oil tanker, the axis of globalization is slowly turning from North-South to East-South relations in trade and finance.
  • Globalization in the Larger Human Scheme
    Phases of globalization bring peculiar logics of territoriality also sovereignty, their own framing of spaces and pragmatics of flows.
  • Globalization in Theory
    What do we mean by ‘globalization’? So, what do we mean by this so-many faceted thing, ‘globalization’? Global markets are such that there is almost no place in the world where you cannot sell your wares and no place in the world from which people are unable to sell their wares into your local market.
