Defining Globalisation

Author

Abstract

A clear and precise definition of globalisation is crucial to advance contemporary knowledge and policy. When taken to mean internationalisation, liberalisation, universalisation or westernisation, ideas of globalisation reveal little new. Important novel insight is opened when globalisation is understood as the spread of transplanetary - and in recent times also increasingly supraterritorial - connections between people. That said, this conception needs to be carefully qualified in order to avoid globalist excesses. Copyright 2007 The Author. Journal compilation Blackwell Publishing Ltd. 2007.
