Küreselleşme ve Yerelleşme

This study examines the relation between globalization and localization processes which are argued multi-dimensionally . The concept of globalization, in recent debate, is used to stress the emergence of a world economy, a world polity, a global culture, in a general sense the emergence of a world society. Localization stands for the rise of localized, culturally defined identities, sometimes within, sometimes transcending, the boundaries of a state. Globalization and localization are not separable processes. The relationship between these processes is complex and controversial.
