The revolutionary opportunities and situations due to globalization raised a new topic of: global Security”. Everyone in the global politics is now concerned about the global security in the context of globalization. I will discuss issue of global security and possibility of its achievement in detail in the context of globalization and I will also highlight global security and the globalization link in the eyes of liberals and realists the two dominating school of thoughts throughout the world. Globalization has minimized the distances and increased the interdependence of states due to advanced technology and communication means. Nowadays the events are more localized and any event happened in one part of the world has impacts on the whole world due to globalization.
Now we have the opportunity to experience the best that the world has to offer. Globalization not only increases individual freedom, but it also revitalizes cultures through foreign influences, technologies, and markets. Thriving cultures are not the ones set in stone. They are the ones that are forever changing due to inside and outside sources. Each generation challenges the previous one; science and technology alter the way we see ourselves and the world; fashions come and go; experience and events influence our beliefs; outsiders affect us for good and bad.
Early empires were thriving on globalizing their countries by creating routes and trails to communicate and transport goods. Globalization has expanded boundaries for 3rd world nations who were underdeveloped to become more civilized in their governance. To understand further where globalization spreads its roots, we must go deeper into the fundamentals of free trade, the free flow of capital and advantage taken of foreign labor markets. First off, free trade has barriers from one another at different levels. In running our personal affairs, virtually all of us exploit the advantages of free trade and comparative advantage without thinking twice (Blinder).
This being said, does not mean we completely throw away the “Marxist” ideas as the real purpose of globalization is to help all mankind and to create a better world for all humans. The selfishness and greed of multinational corporations and individuals who indulge in this worldwide wide economy has to be somewhat controlled. This is where communism would have won. But to reward every individual and his or her hard work must utterly be recognized. The merger of both political systems, the Liberal free-market system and Communism I believe are the pathways to make globalization a much more if not perfect attribute to the survival our planet and mankind.
Global Integration “Global integration is shrinking time, shrinking space and eroding national boundaries.” (IMF & World Bank) Globalisation possibly the most important force at work at this time in history describes the process of increase integration and interdependence between national economies. It depicts the breaking down of national boundaries leading to the establishment of a single world market. This inevitable process of globalisation has and will continue to be accelerated by the electronic revolution. Advancement in telecommunications and information technology has lead to growth in cross border relationships initiated by the drivers of globalisation. Embracing globalisation is encouraged due to its explicit benefits including reducing poverty, increasing living standards and increasing world trade.
While globalization deepens mutual dependence and further promotes this era’s trend toward peace and development, its nature of imbalance has led to the rise of power politics in the same period, complicating the process of multipolarization. The acceleration of globalization has continually deepened mutual dependence and mutual penetration among countries in various areas, including the economic realm, and increased common interests. In competitive and frictional relations among big powers, cooperation and interaction have appeared. The ability of a single country to unilaterally settle and dominate international affairs has declined. Any country that willfully employs foreign interference, sanctions and war to undermine the interests of other countries will always find itself threatened.
In today’s world, interdependence among states, organizations, and people is escalating. Facilitating the growth of both cooperation and conflict, the effects of this globalization can be evidenced clearly. Some see worldwide integration hastening the establishment of a universal authority whereas others highlight the proliferation and emerging influence of non-state actors, such as the WHO, Apple, or the EU. Quote three can be associated with the former liberal perspective, as a global government, involving intense collaboration, is seen as both essential and adequate to address surfacing universal tribulations. This recognition of the complexity and broad expanse of dynamic problems accompanying globalization is wholly accurate, as is, the compulsion for a form of transnational action; however, a global government is not in the foreseeable future.
Globalization as generally understood involves the increasing interaction of the world's peoples through their national economic systems. Of necessity, these economic systems are reasonably compatible and, in at least some important respects, market oriented. During the past half-century, barriers to trade and to financial flows have generally come down, resulting in a significant broadening of world markets. Expanding markets, in turn, have enhanced competition and nurtured what Joseph Schumpeter called "creative destruction," the continuous scrapping of old technologies to make way for the new. Standards of living rise because the depreciation and other cash flows of industries employing older, increasingly obsolescent, technologies are marshaled, along with new savings, to finance the production of capital assets that almost always embody cutting-edge technologies.
In conclusion, globalization has led to the expansion of technology and wealth throughout the world. By opening the borders of each nation, it gives people the opportunity to learn from each other and become a better world. Unfortunately, with the good comes the bad. The opening of borders gives the criminal element the opportunity to expand and take advantage of the less fortunate. It is important for nations to unite in their efforts to address the globalization of crime by working together and sharing information.
One Citizenship Globalization is defined as the international integration arising from the development of the world and its technologies. It has been an ongoing process that is viewed with much controversy. Several concerns and disagreements arise among famous organizations, economists, government leaders and many other political groups about this specific topic. However, globalization eliminates geographical barriers and promotes cultural exchange. Direct advantages of globalization are, its ability to create more jobs, how it attracts, promotes and supports foreign investment, how it leads to a more efficient development of new ideas and technology through global communication, and its ability to provide citizens of the world with diverse products and services.
