RETHINKING GLOBALISM AFTER SEPTEMBER 11: PARADOXES IN THE EVOLUTION OF GLOBALISATION

Cornel du Toit

Abstract


In this paper the September 11 events are seen as an important motivation to
rethink various issues related to globalism. Although many positive outcomes of
globalisation can be identified, many paradoxes emerge as the process are
enfolding. Most of these paradoxes relate to economic globalisation. To place this
into perspective the, the evolution of the nation-state, the concept of territorium and
space, and the market need to be considered. The conversion of the nation-state into
the competitive state marks a cornerstone in this development which prove to be
disastrous to Third world countries. The South African position in the unfolding of
globalisation is briefly investigated with reference to Nepad and its potential to
make the African continent a meaningful player in the global game.
