  Globalization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some maintain that globalization is an imagined geography; that is, a political tool of ruling neo-liberalists, who are attempting to use certain images and discourses of world politics to justify their political agendas.
A consequence of economic globalization is increasing relations among members of an industry in different parts of the world (globalization of an industry), with a corresponding erosion of national sovereignty in the economic sphere.
Globalization also means cross-border management activities or development processes to adapt to the emergence of a globalized market or to seek and realize benefit from economies of scale or scope or from cross-border learning among different country-based organizations.

 Globalization - Entry from Oxford Companion to Politics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Globalization too has to be understood as a multidimensional process which is not reducible to an economic logic and which has differential impacts across the world's regions and upon individual states.
Contemporary globalization is associated with a transformation of state power as the roles and functions of states are re-articulated, reconstituted and re-embedded at the intersection of globalizing and regionalising networks and systems.
The impact of globalization is mediated significantly by a state's position in global political, military and economic hierarchies; its domestic economic and political structures; the institutional pattern of domestic politics; and specific government as well as societal strategies for contesting, managing or ameliorating globalizing imperatives.

 Globalization entry / inflected with postcolonialism
Globalization remains a term employed primarily in the social sciences, where it is used to describe contemporary Western experience (whether it realizes this or not), while postcolonial studies are rooted in the humanities and focus on the experiences and practices of non-Western countries, especially as they relate to Western cultural, economic and political domination.
Although globalization and postcolonial studies are thus related, it would nevertheless be a mistake to simply subsume globalization into postcolonial studies, or, on the contrary, to simply see globalization as an alternate term for postcolonialism—the name for postcolonial studies in the twenty-first century.
On the other hand, the discourses surrounding globalization may be able to push postcolonial studies to consider more fully the impact of contemporary global economics and mass communications technologies on contemporary reality, as well as the radically disembedded character of contemporary identities and cultures which necessitates the elaboration of new models of power and resistance.

 Globalization
Globalization refers to increased possibilities for action between and among people in situations where latitudinal and longitudinal location seems immaterial to the social activity at hand.
Globalization refers to those processes whereby geographically distant events and decisions impact to a growing degree on “local” university life.
Globalization in this sense is a matter of degree since any given social activity might influence events more or less faraway: even though a growing number of activities seems intermeshed with events in distant continents, certain human activities remain primarily local or regional in scope.

 the theory and experience of globalization
While with globalization the power of national governments over macro-economic forces may have been limited in recent years, the services and support they provide for their citizens have been seen as a considerable opportunity for corporations.
Of course, there are issues related to globalization that do connect with imperialism (the history of conquests, colonialism, and alien rule remains relevant today in many ways), and a postcolonial understanding of the world has its merits.
Globalization in the sense of connectivity in economic and cultural life across the world, is of a different order to what has gone before.

Gill: Globalization is contributing to the emergence of a differently constituted self and social morality: a self and a social morality which no longer needs to situate itself within a progress narrative.
