Introduction: The Globalization Agenda

Roopinder Oberoi , Jamie Halsall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Chapter 1 is an introduction by Roopinder Oberoi and Jamie P. Halsall that attempts to decode globalization, which still remains a problematic undertaking. Globalization is the culmination of interactive, co-evolutionary processes of multiple simultaneous technological, cultural, economic, social and environmental movements extending into every part of the imaginable spatio-temporal range. This chapter endeavours to put forth views on diverse strands of globalization. It is critcal to candidly identify with both the assent of and the departure from globalization, and currently each perspective highlights the elemental aspects of today’s global realty. It is equally true that global establishments have fallen severely short of achieving the global aspirations of all people/concerned parties. This is what the edited volume proposes and discusses in the chapter to understand the profound and unfolding events in the global arena - the coalescence of the unhindered and uncritical acceptance of an order to which there is no immediate recognized resolution.
