The Impact of Globalization on the Formation of a Global Political System
Ilyin, Ilya V.; Rozanov, Alexander Sergeevich
Campus-Wide Information Systems, v30 n5 p340-345 2013
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of globalization on the formation of a global political system. Design/methodology/approach: Taking into account the fact of global political evolution, the authors of the paper point out that the global political structures tend to change. Findings: During the past millennium the global political architecture has changed greatly from a state of low degree of cohesion and a simple structure to a fairly high level of unity and strong structure of today. Moreover, this development of the global political order was not just a simple change in the system of social relations, but also a directed search for such forms of organization that will be acceptable for a growing population. Research limitations/implications: The authors examine the development of a political system changing from the world phase to the global era. The paper aims to deepen the understanding of global political processes. Practical implications: The results of the research can be used as recommendations for state governments to strengthen the position of civil society and political institutions within a certain country. Originality/value: The development of a global political order was evolutionary in the sense that it took place as a "natural" process of "trial and error" (it can be viewed as a phenomenon of the deployment of evolution), which does not require the postulation of a general plan or focus. Political globalization is closely connected with the process of informatization. The global political system makes it easier to use information technologies as an instrument of political pressure.
