Deconstructing Globalisation

Globalization_2

Almost everywhere you look you can identify facets of how the world is shrinking: from the global refugee crisis, to anti-poverty and climate change protest movements, and from the rise of global terrorist movements to the interconnections and mass mobilisation of the far Right. Indeed globalisation is a complex animal, stretching into different sectors, fields of life, affecting different kinds of people, not just traders and stock brokers.

In this edition of the Resources for Democracy podcast, we talk to Umut Bozkurt, Assistant Professor of International Relations at the Eastern Mediterranean University who walks us through the nuances and complexities of what we broadly term ‘globalisation’.
