Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Globalization, Political Economics, grade: 1, University of Bologna (MIREES - International Research and Studies on Eastern Europe), language: English, abstract: A precise and exclusive definition of globalization all scholars agree with has not yet been made. The range is broad and differs from the eye of the beholder, since we are talking about a concept that has an impact all over the world, in every facet of life and on every single creature living on it. It is not simply definable through a single concept, but rather highly complex. This is also the difficulty about it and embraces the questions about the beginning, the intensity and where this leads to. I will examine these questions in this essay. Therefore I suggest to consider globalization as an open concept with its consequences. They might be advantageous for somebody, but disadvantageous for somebody else at the same time. Hence, I will collect a number of facts that globalization brought about and maybe try to give ideas in how far they could be considered as positive or negative of different actors. This collection can't be exclusive and should be examined to exemplify.
