Abstract

As we have seen, academic discussions of globalisation and its consequences have been quite strongly contested. For some authors, globalisation is merely a further logical stage in the development of modern capitalism; while for others, it represents a distinctive break with the past, as embodied in the form of the traditional nation state. For some, it is primarily a cultural phenomenon, while for others it is essentially driven by economic and political forces. And while some are keen to celebrate the emergence of new global dialogues that will create tolerance and mutual understanding, others see only an extension of already well-established relationships of oppression and inequality.
