The word globalization has become commonly used in social sciences. To what extent is this simply a fashion or a new economic, political and social phenomenon? Taking up the research carried out by the IRPPS scholars in recent years, this research project addresses three different aspects of globalization: in the economy, in technology and in politics. Economic globalization has overwhelmingly invaded daily life. The new information technologies are probably the factor that allowed and facilitated globalization in other economic, social and cultural dimensions. What will be the innovations that will allow to bring about economic development? To what extent is globalization also changing political life? Do international organizations manage to govern the processes of change today? Particular attention will be paid to the possibility of achieving a democratization of globalization through the reform of international organizations.
