The Dark Side of Globalization

image of The Dark Side of Globalization
Globalization has brought many benefits, including the reduction of poverty in several countries. But it also has a dark side: the unleashing of negative forces as a result of the compression of time and space made possible by modern technology. From arms trafficking in West Africa through armed insurgencies in South Asia and the upsurge of jihad in the age of globalization, this book examines the challenges that the dark forces of globalization pose to the international system and the responses they have triggered. Written largely by authors from developing countries, the book's goal is to help maximize the beneficial consequences of globalization while muting its baleful effects.

Globalization and South Asian insurgencies

Globalization has been unfolding for centuries. The spice trade, the Silk Road, colonialism and unregulated migration were all part of it. However, globalization, as understood in contemporary international relations studies, is only a few decades old. South Asian insurgencies, in this sense, are older than the emergence of contemporary globalization.
