Relation Between Cultural Globalization and Democracy

by findsteps

Theories that have been notoriously questioned in their interpretations are globalisation and democracy. This report is not an attempt to provide an overview of the fundamental interpretative frames imposed on democracy or democratization by social science, but an endeavour to focus on a chosen approach to globalization in order to understand the relation between cultural globalization and democracy and how they intrinsically matter to each other. Undeniably, the processes of globalization have been transforming the conditions under which territorial democracies function today; therefore only by understanding the factors and players connected with the mechanisms that shape ‘community’ under glocalized conditions will it be possible to define the way in which the present day democracy and cultural changes across the globe influence each other.


Globalization may be considered the conceptual trend between various systems, culminating in stronger interconnections between socio-cultural, economic and political processes on a global scale. Many have described it as the misbalanced mechanism that has contributed to the worsening of the interdependencies of the world’s major economies with rising hostility against economies departing from these major economies. The complex consequences of globalisation with multi-faceted impacts from various systems on different countries have been continuously found to be interlinked across the chains of globalisation.

Because of the amalgamation of many national economies into the world market in the context of commerce, capital transfers, foreign direct investment, migration and technical diffusion and developments, it has been widely referred to as economic globalisation.
