The effects of globalization in a global community Ferbryan Cliff Pelleng (016201400060) Globalization is a process of interaction and integration among the people, companies, and governments of different nations, a process driven by international trade and investment and aided by information technology. This process has effects on the environment, on culture, on political systems, on economic development and prosperity, education and on human physical well-being in societies and communities around the world Community itself is a group of people who share not just living space but also ideas, belief, goods, and solutions to a common global issue. But in a wider perspective, a global community consist of the people or nations of the world, considered as being closely connected by modern telecommunications and as being economically, socially, and politically interdependent.

What is Globalization? Globalization is a complicated topic, but you can see clearly its influence. Globalization is:" The worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration. Globalization implies the opening of local and nationalistic perspectives to a broader outlook of an interconnected and interdependent world with free transfer of capital, goods, and services across national frontiers."
As per World Culture Theory of Globalization (Robertson, 1992), though there exists an impact of globalization on societal and other socio-cultural processes, but still it operates independent of these constituents. It is important to note that, breaking old social orders and enabling new solidarities, there exists global movement of religious ideas, money, tourism, food and technology. As per (Robertson, 1992), there is no single driving force to globalization, but contrary to this there exists a popular notion that there is a pecuniary interconnection to the globalization process. At different times throughout the history of mankind there have been integrated dominant casual forces in the process of globalization, such as, religion, culture and technology. One has to understand that the basis of World Culture Theory of Globalization forms from the fact that “globalization is not a monolithic concept but has a multidimensional aspect attached to it”.
The term refers to a global process by which different societies, cultures and regional economies integrate through a worldwide network of political ideas through transformation, communication and trade. Some argue that globalization is not a tool to produce equality of outcome but it produces equality of opportunity for countries. Early forms of globalization began during times of empires like the Roman and Parthian empires. The 19th century, however, marks a period characterized by rapid growth in international trade and investment between the European imperial powers, their colonies and later the US, thus is sometimes called ‘the first era of globalization’. The gold standard crisis and in the late 1920s is the reason

Globalization can be explained in mainly 3 different areas: in politic, social and economic terms. In politic terms, globalization can refer to the shift of political activities from a single-nation level to a global level and it has been created international organization such as the United Nations. It has also tried to spread democracies all over the world. Social globalization describes an exchange of values, ideas and it has facilitated the promotion of equality, dignity and human rights.
The indicators of globalization Globalization is the process of increasing interaction and interdependence between societies, economies and nations across large distances. The term globalization not only refers to the movement of goods and services across countries and that consumption has been internationalized through cross-border trade, production has been also internationalized by foreign direct investment. Globalization sometimes can be good and sometimes can be bad. Its effect differs from one country to another. Globalization participates in the increasing power of multinationals all over the world in addition to worldwide spreading of human rights and knowledge.
I will share the illustration of both the tension between local culture and globalization, and as well the opportunities afforded by globalization. We should first of all ask what globalization is. Globalization is the integration of economics, political, and cultural system across the globe. However, other critics view it as an Americanization of the world culture, a means by which the U.S to systematically dominate the world affaires? Globalization has a profound implication on culture identity and media, such as chains of restaurants, movies, music’s, and TV shows in various countries in an unprecedented speed.
First, Globalization is the integration among organizations, governments, and people of different countries through investment and international trade or what we call free markets. It resulted of the increasing rate of interdependency between countries. Globalization has different impacts on a nation; it has an economic, cultural, political, environmental, and even human-well being. Our main focus in this paper will be on economic and cultural impacts of Globalization on Egypt. Globalization has positive and negative impacts on any culture, especially in developing countries like Egypt.
Globalization is the process of integration and this integration affects culture. Culture is very unique and valuable to every nation. Each nation’s culture as seen negative consequences from globalization at different dimension. The term cultural globalization refers to the transmission of ideas, meanings and values around the world in such a way as to extend and intensify social relations. This process is marked by the common consumption of cultures that have been diffused by the Internet, popular culture media, and international travel.
