While economic globalization has been the most notable global process over the past few decades, this has been accompanied by dramatic trans-border ecological issues, wealth/income stratification, security issues over criminal and terrorist networks, and a litany of other global challenges. Far from reaching the 'End of History', recent issues such as the global financial crisis and the effects of climate change portend a quickening of the debate over what globalization should be and where 'it' should go.
This talk will discuss the policy implications of ten emerging visions for globalization. These visions for alternative globalizations provide policy makers an opportunity to widen the field of options and strategies. Plural and parallel process of globalization can allow a 'hatmonization' process across new definitions and aspects of global change as an essential accompaniment to the now dominant economic definition. Yet plural visions need to be accompanied by coherences, and a central argument is thus the need to create spaces and platforms whereby diverse state and non-state actors holding diverse perspectives can cooperate and collaborate to address the world's great 21st century challenges.
