Globalization is marked with increasing economic integration and growing economic interdependence between countries of the world. There is an increased cross border movement of goods, technology, people, information etc. Globalization brings new potentials for development and wealth creation. But there are divergent views on the economic impact of globalization. Few argue that the present model of globalization has increased the problems of unemployment, inequality and poverty, while others contend that globalization helped to reduce these aspects.
In the discussion about the issue: “Does globalization threaten cultural diversity?”, I am more likely to believe that the diversity of the world’s cultures is not endangered by the process of globalization. It cannot be denied that globalization has some bad effects on the variety of cultures in the world, it will not put these cultures at the extinction risk because besides the bad things, globalization does helps develop the cultural diversity and all cultures are different from each other by their main cores and people have strong belief in them. First of all, according to Tomlinson: “Far from being the fragile ﬂower that globalization tramples, identity is seen here as the up surging power of local culture that offers (albeit multi-form,
Since the advent of economic globalization, humans have undergone massive social transformations, such as technological achievements, appearance of supranational institutions, ethnic divisions, etc. Some people voice their support for the position that those changes denote unbridgeable social diversities. Others, on the contrary, affirm that they are the attributes of social convergence. I personally endorse the social confluence because of following rationales. A striking characteristic of the economic globalization is marked improvement of digital technology, which allows people to live together in a global village.
Globalization has been often described as the growing interconnectedness of ideas, economies, cultures and people from all around the world. As nations around the world continue to modernize and adopt new technologies, they are undeniably becoming more and more intertwined with one another. The outcomes created through this process have subsequently spurred controversial debates on both sides of the spectrum. While many individuals perceive globalization as beneficial process, others have argued that this process should be approached with great caution. A plethora of arguments and evidence have been brought about through this discourse supporting both advocates and opponents of globalization.
Those who are in support of it argue that multiculturalism assists in the intergration of minorities and immigrants, removing barriers to their participation in the Canadian life and making them feel more welcome in the Canadian society, leading to a rigid sense of belonging and pride in Canada. On the other hand, critics argue that multiculturalism leads to the promotion of balkanization and ghettoization, giving encouragement to the members of ethnic groups to look inwards, and emphasizing on the differences between groups rather than their shared rights or identities as Canadian citizens. This debate is highly ritualized and its basic terms have barely changed in 35 years. One reason to why this debate continues to recycle is that until recently, there had been little concrete evidence to test these duelling perspectives on the impact of multiculturalism. However, in the past few years important new evidence emerged which can be divided into two broad categories: I.
What is globalization and culture? What effect or impact has globalization had on culture? Globalization is the inclination of speculation assets and organizations to move past local and national markets to different markets the world over, subsequently expanding the interconnection of the world. Globalization has had the impact of particularly expanding worldwide exchange and social trade. Also, because of globalization international business grown, improved and removed a lot of obstacles when interacting with international markets.
Further, globalization is resulting in the alienation of people by bringing them together and there is no consensus on whether the bringing of people closer and thus striving for global homogeneity/uniformity/conformity is a good development, or whether it occurs at the heavy cost of destroying indigenous or local beliefs and culture. Similarly, whether globalization increases or decreases poverty as well as economic disparity is a hotly debated and contested issue, same could be said about the impact of foreign direct investment by multinational corporations (MNCs) (the drivers of globalization) on development and human rights. What is hotly debated is that positive and the negative implications of globalization, for the realization of human rights particularly in developing
The negatives of globalization incorporate hole in the middle of rich and poor, decrease in the individual sway of a country, natural contamination and powerlessness of all parts of the world enduring with subsidence in different nations. With its pros and cons, no one can escape the fact that globalization is a universal process and it will continue to prevail. The question is how to make the whole process transparent in order to provide equal opportunities to everyone. Controlling anarchy is another important issue to take into consideration so that human rights can be preserved. With efforts and attempts to restore peace and harmony, the process of globalization is all ready to change from ‘world's nightmare' to a dream come
However in my opinion, globalization has done more harm than good to the people of the world especially people in the developing world. With the way the world economy is going it is obvious that the main beneficiaries of globalization are the developed capitalist countries. There have been many human rights abuses since the introduction of globalization. First and foremost the gap between the rich and poor keeps on widening and inequality is
Globalization has affected countries in numerous ways; Socially, economically, and politically. The ways that globalization has done so is typically looked at it a harmful way.
