Chapter Summary

This index contains a list of author names, concepts and terms that occur in this book titled East-West Identities. The recent discourses on the implications of globalization refer to the process whereby the world is said to be transformed into a single global system. Analysts approach the question (and debate) from three angles: economic, political, and cultural. The globalization process has strengthened the world economy’s regulatory mechanisms such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization, which regulate the global economy and thereby act as constraints on the degree of freedom with which nation-states can pursue their own individual economic development and, by extension, their political policies.

Keywords: economic development; globalization
