Sefali Patel April 27, 2010 Global East Asia (01:098:245) Discussion Sheet #7 Throughout this course we have discussed several different aspects of globalization including its economical, political, cultural, environmental and ideological dimensions. Although we have explored globalization throughout history and its effects in today’s world, the future of globalization remains ambiguous. In “ Globalization: A Very Short Introduction Manfred B. Steger investigates the effects that the global fight against terrorism will have on globalization. Similarly, in his article “ Out of the Shadows: Can Japan’s Nuclear Power Renaisance Reduce Global Emissions? ” journalist David McNeill analyzes the issue of nuclear power on a global spectrum. The following discusses the global fight against terrorism and nuclear power in relation to the future of globalization. The global war on terror, which resulted from the tragic events of 9/11, has undoubtedly affected the globalization phenomenon. However, according to Steger, the future impact that it will have on globalization can go one of two ways. The global fight against terrorism may lead to more extensive forms of international cooperation and interdependence. For instance, efforts to contain jihadist globalism may encourage the forging of new global alliances.
