Challenges, Jan Aart Scholte's definitions of globalization, Journals,
Abstracts, Bibliography, Syllabus, Books
The globalization process is seen as driven by
the growth of international capitalism and involving the
transformation of the culture and social structures of
non-capitalist and pre-industrial societies.
Globalization is marked by the expansion of the
size and power of multinational corporations.
A world-wide process of the internationalization of communication, trade, human resource
and economic organization.
The globalization process in the economic sphere
can be seen in international trade agreements and the enormous increase in the volume of
international trade and growing economic interdependency between countries.
Most people today refer to the time in which we live as the
age of globalization. I prefer the term interdependence, because it makes it clear that
the nature of the world today and our connections are far more than economic, and because
it makes it clear that the consequences of those relationships can be both negative and
positive. Interdependence simply means we cannot escape each other. We have to recognize
that we cannot have a global economic system without building a global social system. -

Corporate Codes of Conduct and the Success of Globalization

S. Prakash Sethi
Abstract: This article focuses on the expanding role of multinational corporations (MNCs)
in developing countries, within the context of globalization and free trade. It
demonstrates that the current state of globalization does not conform to the conventional
notion of free trade. Therefore, given the prevailing circumstances, MNCs have an unfair
advantage in expropriating a greater share of gains from efficiency and productivity from
international trade than would be possible if labor had greater mobility or more equitable
Globalization and the distribution of income: The economic arguments
Ronald W. Jones - Department of Economics, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY

Han Woo Park - YeungNam University, South Korea
Mike Thelwall - University of Wolverhampton, UK

universities than linked to each other.

James K. Boyce, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

environmental quality, or environmental polarization in which the greening of
the global North is accompanied by the browning of the global South.
Debate: Globalization and local response to epidemiological overlap
in 21st century Ecuador
William F Waters
Introduction: epidemiologic transition and globalization: This paper begins with the
premise that global public health is not at its core only a medical issue but is, rather,
embedded in social, cultural, political, and economic structures and processes. Moreover,
changes in those structures and processes involve the evolution of patterns of health and
wellness, which can be described in terms of epidemiologic transition and overlap.

Haesung Lee: Sociology in Korea: between globalism and seeking for the identity -
The paper deals with the process of reception and development of sociology in South Korea
after World War II. In the earlier period the science was not only a new, but also a
culturally foreign phenomenon. Sociology took root in the intellectual life of South Korea
society as a result of social, economic and political modernization of the state in its
specific conditions. In particular it should be noted that (1) sociology became an
important area of reflection on Korea's social reality; (2) reception of sociology was
very rapid it continues to be swift; (3) process of overcoming xenophobia took place,
accompanied by attempts at adjusting Euro-American sociologist concepts to the reality of
social life in Korea.
