Abstract: Appeals for a multi-dimensional and multi/inter-disciplinary approach to the study of global systems still lose out to varieties of methodological nationalism; while disciplines shy away form much that is intellectually foreign. Through attention to the soft features of globalization and enacted globality (largely cultural and motivational phenomena and the realms of meaning)and to the disciplines that promote such approaches (Sociology, Cultural Studies; Social Anthropology, Communication Studies and some areas of Geography) this paper offers reworking of disciplinary paradigms and a remoinder that a frenetic search for appropriate indicators of globalization cannot be confined to economic or narrowly conceived governance phenomena. In this respect it provides the basis for a critical global studies, one which is concerned with the making, reproduction, and transformation of global systems – with globality as a “constitutive framework” for all social relations. Culture is an intriguing zone of analysis for students of globalizationsand global systems,because of its relative neglect or cavalier treatment by researchers ofall persuasions. The paper argues that we treat culture as more than shorthand for some exotic conjunctional features of current globalization, and examine cultural phenomena as part of a description of new forms of sociality constituted through global processes. In the latter guise, culture becomes the realm of shared meanings and purposive action in systemic relationshipsconstitutive of and dependent on larger processes of the global system.

Abstract: The 4th Annual Globalization Index, published in a recent issue of Foreign Policy: Global Politics, Economics, and Ideas, claims to assess and track 'four key components of global integration to determine the world's most 'global nations.' These four indicators of globalization include: economic integration (trade, FDI, capital flows, investment income), personal contact (int'l travel and tourism, int'l telephone traffic, remittances and personal transfers), technological connectivity (Internet users and hosts, and secure servers), and political engagement (membership in IOs, contributions to UN Security Council missions, int'l treaties ratified, and governmental transfers). While not directly included in the index, life expectancy, levels of religious participation, and women's well-being were also measured against the globalization index, with life expectancy and women's well-being directly correlating to measures of globalization, and religious participation indicating a 'significant amount of exceptions.' What is particularly interesting about this recent 'calculation' of the most 'global nations' is the claim in the report that despite September 11th and the proceeding 'war on terror' the world is now more, not less, integrated than ever before. However, what I would like to suggest in this paper is that the world is more 'globalized' not despite September 11th and the war on terror but precisely because of it, as evident in the fact that the United States is now ranked in the top ten Globalization Index rating, because what globalization fundamentally signifies in this particular moment is not interconnectedness, but rather abject exclusion. Through a feminist curiosity this paper will seek to deconstruct these abstract indicators of globalization (both for what is explicit and implicit) to reveal the exclusionary gendered and racialized representational practices at work, and also seek to critically explore the connections between violence and globalization, more to the point how claims to globalization are made possible through violent encounters.

Abstract: At first glance, private military companies, non-governmental organizations and terrorist organizations belong to totally separate categories. In reality, they differ surprisingly little in terms of functions, organization and even purpose. From the standpoint of the state, they all share the common characteristic of being non-state actors which potentially threaten to overthrow existing states and the inter-state system to which they belong. By comparing these three groups of non-state actors based on research especially of the former two, this paper considers their impacts on the traditional international security system, and the prospects of whether they are conducive to giving birth to human security in global public sphere.
In consideration of this problem, the presentation will use the analytical framework of global governance, global public sphere, GASC: global armed societal conflict and human security. In this analytical framework, a PMC is presumed as one of armed non-state actors to cope with GASCs in global public sphere under human security as global public security by global governance.
