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: This research examines the role of global civil society in the formation and expansion of markets. In particular, we analyze the uneven formation and expansion of fair trade markets across the global North. A common contemporary form of fair trade uses product-level certification systems and third-party regulators to evaluate the implementation of fair trade standards. Focusing on this form of fair trade in which the market regulated at the product level dominates, we use fair trade sales data provided by Fairtrade International and Fair Trade USA which comprises the majority of the contemporary fair trade market. Data are total sales of fair trade goods across 30 countries from 1994 to 2013. Preliminary results indicate that national levels of connectedness to global civil society, measured as citizen memberships in international nongovernmental organizations, predicts a larger domestic fair trade market.

Abstract: Recent years have seen a striking proliferation of the term ‘global’ in public, political and political studies discourse world-wide. ‘Global’ has come to constitute a significant political currency; it has come to be one of the discourse-shaping terms today. Yet, reflection on the diverse applications of the term ‘global’ and the ideas that are associated with it has been rare. ‘Global’ is naturalised, meaning that it is taken for granted. The ‘naturalisation’ of the term ‘global’ is problematic, though, because the idea of ‘global’ potentially challenges traditional perceptions of socio-political reality and addresses the important social coordinates of ‘we’ and ‘them’; at the same time it (potentially) blurs power relations and particular interests in that it covers them in (supposedly) all-embracing, ‘global’ terms. Based on a post-structuralist understanding of the relation between reality, linguistic signs and meanings this paper advocates a critical attitude towards the world-wide powerful political currency ‘global’. Which ideas are associated with ‘global’ and by whom are they promoted? Given that prominent (Northern) civil society groups, such as Greenpeace, Amnesty International, Oxfam, WWF, serve as ‘signifying agents’ and have come to gain significant discursive power in the contemporary ‘global’ political discourse, this paper applies a computer assisted content analysis to the communication output of these groups in order to investigate and to reveal how they use the term ‘global’ and in which way they contribute to the discursive construction of (the coordinates of) our contemporary ‘global’ world.

Abstract: I develop a critical constructivist evolutionary theory of international financial institutions and arrangements. Specifically, I analyze the role of IMF under the present globalization moves and repeated financial crises by following such a critical constructivist evolutionary theory of international financial institutions. Furthermore, the potential for reforms in the wake of the global financial crisis and the great recession is analyzed from a dialectical social constructivist viewpoint that combines the power of --sometimes conflicting--- norms and ideas with the underlying structural contradictions to produce a “critical-constructivist” analysis of the potential for change. It is shown that IMF must and can change in a direction which allows for greater national policy autonomy. It is also shown that the IMF needs complementary regional institutions of cooperation in order to create a stabilizing hybrid global financial architecture that will be more democratic and Keynesian-Kaleckian in terms of its theoretical underpinnings. Thus regional financial architectures will need to be integral parts of any new global financial architecture(GFA).The tentative steps taken towards regional cooperation in Asia since Asian financial crisis are discussed to illustrate the opportunities and challenges posed by the need to evolve towards a hybrid GFA. The opportunities and challenges arising from the current global crisis are analyzed in this context.
