Project description

Globalization is generally understood as growing interdependency and interpenetration of countries and regions, and this in a wide array of domains: economic, political, social, cultural, etc. This leads us to following research questions: 1) how does globalization affects the structure of the world system and 2) how does globalization influences the developmental opportunities of countries.
