Debates in Globalization

Some scholars argue globalization has been around for thousands of years. Most scholars however point to the growth of the capitalist system as being at the heart of the new forces unleashed by globalization. Apart from increasing economic trade, the most commonly cited instance of globalization is increasing “interconnectedness”. But what exactly does that mean, and what are its consequences for people living around the world? The module explores some of the key debates surrounding globalization as seen from the perspective of different disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, politics and economics, to name a few. In addition to exploring whether globalization is producing increasing homogenization or heterogenization, the module covers other important aspects of globalization that include: the international division of labour, the emergence of new market economies, the recent advent of mass international migration, the impact of new communications technologies, and the meaning of buzz words such as “flow” and “connectivity”.
