The word globalization has become one of the most commonly used in the social sciences. To what extent is this simply a trend or a new economic, political and social phenomenon? Resuming the research carried out by IRPPS scholars over the last few years, the Commission deals with three different aspects of globalization: in economics, technology and politics (to each of which a page is dedicated).
Economic globalization has overwhelmingly invaded daily life. The new information technologies are probably the factor that allowed and facilitated globalization in the other economic, social and cultural dimensions. What will be the innovations that, after seven years of crisis all over the world, will enable economic development to be triggered? To what extent is globalization also changing political life? Are international organizations today able to govern the processes of change?
Particular attention will be paid to possibility of reaching a democratization of globalization through the reform of international organizations
