Globalization, Development and Human Security  [cached]
Bogdan ?tefanachi
Sfera Politicii , 2011,
Abstract: The conjunction between globalization, development and human security is absolutely necessary and extremely useful to understand and to explain the contemporary space of international relations. The globalization process, even more obvious after the end of Cold War, offers the conditions to define human development and human security, focusing on the normative priority of the impact of policies on the individual. The international space, transformed under the pressure of globalization, becomes relevant in the extent that an alternative discourse that encompasses all these transformations comes out. This new narration transforms the individual in the referent object of development and security, as well.
Hermeneutics and intercultural understanding in the age of globalization  [PDF]
Savi? Mi?o
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/fid1102003s
Abstract: In the article the author considers the relevance of intercultural understanding in the age of globalization and points out the role which Gadamer’s hermeneutics plays in this context. First, the author presents the main characteristics of globalization, taking into account Giddens’ understanding of the contemporary epoch as a radicalization of modernity and Heidegger’s interpretation of the contemporary era as the ending of metaphysics as nihilism. The author emphasizes that the question about conditions of possibility of intercultural understanding becomes an important question of philosophy in the situation of intensification of cross-cultural encounters. Then he argues that Gadamer’s philosophical hermeneutics, especially its conception of effective-historical consciousness, provides an acceptable ground for explanation of possibility of cross-cultural dialogue. As the author concludes, the importance of the ethics of finality is affirmed in that way by hermeneutics in the contemporary world.

Abstract: The fundamental determinant of the competitiveness of a nation is the productivity of the companies acting in its economy. In the age of globalization, countries compete not only for markets, technology, skills and investments, but also for raising their standards of living. The national prosperity is highly affected by competitiveness, defined as the productivity with which a nation uses its resources. The objectives of our paper are to analyze the concept of national competitivenes and to outline the importance of competitiveness in today’s uncertain world. In this respect, we consider competitiveness as a multifaceted concept including both quantitative and qualitative aspects. The objectives of our paper were achieved by reviewing the literature, and by presenting the case of Romania.

Whither the Patrimonial State in the Age of Globalization?
Eric Budd
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 2005,
Abstract: Despite Max Weber’s prediction that rational-legal bureaucracies would replace patrimonialism, we have instead seen the perpetuation of neopatrimonial systems in many developing states. For the postcolonial states that are struggling with the dual challenges of promoting economic growth and establishing stable democratic polities, the perpetuation of patrimonialism adds to their challenges. This paper has explored whether globalization could enable patrimonial states like the Philippines and Indonesia to overcome these patrimonial barriers. Unfortunately, despite the changes represented by globalization, it appears to be “business as usual” with the patrimonial officials using the state apparatus to promote their own interests and those of their cronies. Similarly, globalization seems to be promoting capitalism more than democracy, and is not strengthening the institutions essential for democratic consolidation.

Abstract: At the present juncture of society, when reached a new level of human relationship in various fields of manufacturing, politics and newly established institutions actualized the need for further study of the phenomenon of freedom. На современном переломном этапе развития общества, когда нового уровня достигли человеческие отношения в различных сферах производства, политике и вновь институтах, чрезвычайно актуализируется потребность в дальнейшем исследовании феномена свободы. На сучасному переломному етап розвитку сусп льства, коли нового р вня досягли людськ в дношення в р зних сферах виробництва, пол тиц та новоутворених нституц ях, надзвичайно актуал зу ться потреба в подальшому досл дженн феномену свободи. Особливого значення це питання набува в умовах глобал зац . Адже саме глобальн економ чн , пол тичн , демограф чн , соц альн , нац ональн проблеми, як з новою силою проявляються на початку третього тисячол ття, змушують до переосмислення традиц йних ц нн сних понять та св тоглядно-ф лософських парадигм.
Lex et Scientia , 2009,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore the role of the civic culture and education in the globalization era. Recent sociological studies (G. Devin and others) infirm Norbert Elias’ hypothesis according to which the multiplication and the complicate “interdependent connexions” established generate a mechanical tendency towards the integration and even unification of the international communities. One has noticed that the mentioned interdependent relations lead to stable integration forms only if they are supported by an appropriate axiological-normative system: values, beliefs, democratic procedures. In other words, European integration must be supported by a political culture founded on knowledge, communication, civic involvement and tolerance. The major role attributed to civic culture in accomplishing social inclusion and in creating a “common identity” in the globalization era encourages and justifies the deep and multidimensional analysis that it is subject to, as well as it reveals the importance of performing research work in this field, thus bringing solid arguments for my option. The process of revealing its specific characteristics in a society that has experienced a tough transition process marked by an accentuated anomical state – as the Romanian society has – is not only epistemically but also socially and pragmatically useful. The results of the political culture pattern can direct the evolution and the intensity of the civical socialization process. In the first part of the paper I will analyse the “aggregate sovereignty” concept in the age of mondialization and in the second part integrating tendencies of civic culture in the globalization era.
Concepts for Contemporary Social Work: Globalization, Oppression, Social Exclusion, Human Rights, Etc.
Wormer, Katherine van
Social Work and Society , 2005,
Abstract: The society wrestles with mass social change congruent with economic globalization and the communications revolution. This change creates new challenges for the social work profession in the areas of social and economic justice. This article analyzes the terminology of the new global era, words that signify a paradigm shift in outlook, most of them a reaction to the new authoritarianism of the age. Globalization, oppression, social exclusion, human rights, harm reduction, and restorative justice are the representative terms chosen.
Terrorism from Above and Below in the Age of Globalization  [PDF]

Sociology Mind (SM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2011.11001
Abstract: This paper explains how the intensification of globalization as the modern world system has increased the occurrence of terrorism from above (i.e. state actors) and from below (i.e. non-state actors). We cannot adequately grasp the essence and characteristics of modern terrorism without understanding the larger cultural, social, economic, and political contexts in which it takes place. Since terrorism has been conceptualized, defined, and theorized by those who have contradictory interests and objectives and since the subject matter of terrorism is complex, difficult, and elusive, there is a wide gap in establishing a common understanding among the scholars of terrorism studies. Most experts on the subject look at this issue from a narrow perspective by ignoring the reality that terrorism is a “social cancer” for all human groups affected by it. First, this paper defines the concept of terrorism in relation to different forms of terrorism, and explains how it has increased with the intensification of globalization. Second, taking the events of 9/11 and the case of Ethiopian state terrorism, the piece explores the general impacts of all forms of terrorism.
