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