  14. Globalization

    Globalization

    C. Gopinath
    Globalization evokes mixed responses. It is praised for facilitating business, greater trade between nations and reducing poverty, and is also accused of causing job losses and homogenizing culture. While some nations cheer its benefits, others think of barriers to protect themselves. Yet, everyone agrees that it is a multidimensional and complex process that continuously reshapes our environment. Rather than wonder whether globalization is good or bad, it is important to understand how it impacts nations, organizations and individuals and be prepared to operate in that context. Learn More

  20. The Poverty of Territorialism

    The Poverty of Territorialism

    Andreas Faludi
    Drawing on territorial ideas prevalent in the Medieval period, Andreas Faludi offers readers ways to rethink the current debates surrounding territorialism in the EU. Challenging contemporary European spatial planning, the author examines the ways in which it puts the democratic control of state territories and their development in question. The notion of democracy in an increasingly interconnected world is a key issue in the EU, and as such this book advocates a Europe where national borders are questioned, and ultimately transgressed.
