On the Limits of Globalisation

Victor Roudometof

The article examines the rise and fall of the discourse on globalisation as a topic directly linked to the post-communist New World Order. It argues that globalisation is a notion far broader than the ‘globalisation project’ of economic neo-liberalism. The institutionalisation of Global, Transnational and Cosmopolitan Studies reflects this understanding. Scholarship needs to move beyond the globalisation project and develop far more nuanced interpretations. It suggests that one such interpretation involves the notion of glocalisation, which represents an understanding of the contemporary form of hybridity, thus helping the social sciences to make sense of 21st century social complexity.
