The forces of globalization have intensified the processes of rural-urban interaction along the city fringes by providing impetus to industrial de-concentration towards the peripheral lands in the developing countries. This work attempts to understand the implications of globalized environment for the rural livelihoods and tries to decipher the extent to which the rural workers residing in the vicinity of the six largest metropolitan cities in India are equipped to negotiate with the shrinking natural resource and the resultant changes in the structure of available work. Based on census data, it has emerged that rural workers in general and the rural women in particular have been marginalized from productive work in the fringe districts of the mega-cities relative to the respective rural interiors, more so following the reforms. Such a trend has been corroborated by an exploratory field study in a village in the fringe of Delhi. Thus, it may be argued that the changes injected by the economic reforms have proved to be much more critical in case of the rural population in the urban fringe areas of the largest cities relative to the rural interior.

After 1991 (European Calendar) world is becoming globalizing, liberalizing and urbanizing very fast among various countries. When the world is becoming a global village, businesses also growing fast. When businesses are growing there may be creating more consumption in various products and services. So there are businesses opportunities for various levels of people i.e from low to high income group people. To do business, to interact with the business to various categories of persons, commerce knowledge is more important. Keeping this in mind the authors has written articles on finance, human resources and information technology in particular aspects.
A distinguished and innovative thinker shows why cities and the mayors who run them can provide answers to the world's most urgent problems while rescuing democracy for the twenty-first century. Citing the unique qualities cities worldwide share - pragmatism, civic trust, participation, indifference to borders and sovereignty, and a democratic penchant for networking, creativity, innovation, and cooperation - Benjamin R.Barber demonstrates how city mayors, singly and jointly, are responding to transnational problems more effectively than nation-states mired in ideological infighting and sovereign rivalries. Featuring profiles of more than a dozen mayors around the world - courageous, eccentric, or both at once - If Mayors Ruled the World presents a compelling new vision of governance for the coming century. Barber makes a persuasive case that the city is democracy's best hope in a globalizing world, and great mayors are already proving that this is so.
This book assesses various processes and strategies of engaging disparate development stakeholders in urban governance and evaluates the experiences and capacities of civil society in urban development in Harare. A case is made that macroeconomic instability and other external forces such as globalization constraints, the legacy of colonialism, along with rapid urban population growth, institutional, financial and administrative incapacities, and outdated governance traditions, have resulted in failure of government to provide social services or even to maintain basic infrastructure. Consequently, civil society has stepped up to fill the gap. The effectiveness of civil society; however, depends on the nature of its internal organization and operations, as well as its relationships with the state and other urban development stakeholders. Ultimately, since their roles are complementary and mutually reinforcing, civil society and the state need each other and must work together in order to achieve human sustainable development of all sectors of society. Anyone interested in urban development issues in Africa should find this book useful.
Education development thrust has significant changed due to the increasing globalization and world economics competition among countries. Education has taken on greater strategic importance in the total human resources development.Therefore, the International Standard School program (ISS)in Indonesia is the result of globalizing of world economic and Internationalization of education. This book provides an assessment of ISS program implementing English as medium of instruction in the teaching and learning process. The analysis should help the Ministry of Education of Indonesia as Policy Maker, School administrators, teachers and community as stakeholders of education to consider the findings to strengthen the program and further improve it as well as facilitate the attainment of its objectives.

In this hugely controversial book, the most recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics argues that though globalization should be a powerful force for good, it has been badly mishandled by the West (especially its lead institutions, the World Bank and the IMF), and that the anti-globalizing protestors have much to say that we should listen to. Coming from a figure of Stiglitz's background and authority, this is an explosive message which will change the way we regard modern global politics.
Starting from a virtually zero base, the globalizing services value chain has been growing exponentially during the first decade of the XXI century, and has showed a remarkable resilience to the negative impact of the 2008-2009 worldwide recession. The core engine of the GSVC is the unceasing attempt on the part of large and advanced capitalist enterprises to cut costs, in order to survive and thrive in the midst of global oligopolistic competition. A crucial characteristic of the globalizing services value chain GSVC, and one that goes a long way to explain its extraordinary expansive drive, is that it affects not only traditional services, but also many activities which were traditionally embodied in the industrial manufacturing process. Thanks to technological progress in information and communications technologies (ICTs) and other areas, these activities can presently be disembodied. Such a vertical disintegration of the production process allows the newly-created services activities to be performed in a remote location, transformed into informational inputs, and purchased through market transactions.
“Being aware that cultural diversity creates a rich and varied world, which increases the range of choices and nurtures human capacities and values, and therefore is a mainspring for sustainable development for communities, peoples and nations,” UNESCO promulgated the Convention on the protection and promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions (2005 convention). At the basis of the 2005 convention laid the assumption that today’s globalizing world is pushing cultural diversity towards a harmonization point determined by market forces. To counteract this threat, this convention transfers responsibility to nation-states to implement cultural policies fostering cultural diversity both internationally and nationally. Nevertheless, the mechanisms by which nation-states foster cultural diversity while maintaining cultural identity are not obvious. This research seeks to provide a pragmatic understanding of “cultural diversity” and the mechanism for its protection under the framework of the 2005 convention through a content analysis of the cultural policies implemented by the state-parties.
