Global Governance: Globalization and Non-State Actors

- “The process of globalization and the increasing role of non-state actors in global governance are undermining the role of the state as the principal actor in global policymaking.” Globalization and the increasing role of non-state actors have shifted the position of states, the traditional “main players” in global governance. However, whether this change undermines states is debatable. In one sense, states’ roles have somewhat diminished: Non-governmental entities – namely transnational corporations (TNC), but also global non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and others – have an increasing voice in global policy debates, which may lessen states’ influence in governmental affairs....   [tags: transnational companies, NGOs]

Sociology And Social Activity : How Individual Actors Interpret Social Situations

- INTRODUCTION A vital element of the study of sociology and social activity is the study of how individual actors interpret social situations.

Individuals understand and act in social situations based on both individual interpretation, as well as large underlying structural forces. The micro interpretation of this concept can be critically examined with theories such as interpretivist sociology and symbolic interactionism (Scott 2009:16, 24)....   [tags: Sociology, Agency, Structure]

For instance, take his role as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network.

Now, when the film ended, viewers had absolutely no idea what was happening or whether or not humanity managed to secure the upper hand in the alien invasion. And to be honest, that was half the fun. This time, Abrams has made it clear this latest Cloverfield-themed production is not a sequel - although it could easily have been dubbed that way....   [tags: American film actors, American television actors]
