 1. How has globalization played a role in challenging the power of the state? In other words, which of the challenges are attributable to globalization and which are attributable to forces that may run counter to globalization, such as religion?
2. Is there an alternative to the nation-state? Are there more natural ways to organize politics? Think about alternatives that are smaller (ethnic groups, tribes, regions) and larger (multistate coalitions like the European Union or world government).
3. One way to think about the European Union is as a natural progression into larger political units. Centuries ago, Europe was a series of city-states, then slightly larger kingdoms, then larger principalities, then nation-states, and now a larger union. Can you foresee a similar evolution in any other geographic region, such as Latin America or Africa?

assignment 5 


Globalization, which is often defined as the widening, deepening, and speeding up of worldwide interconnectedness in all aspects of contemporary social life, has been viewed as a key organizing principle of global politics in the post-Cold War era. Yet the concept itself is fundamentally contested and its impact on the state is hotly debated, with liberal economists, global skeptics, and transformationalists each offering competing understandings of the process. 

Contrast the perspectives on globalization offered by liberal economists, global skeptics, and transformationalists, focusing in particular on the implications of their respective viewpoints on the power and authority of the nation state. Does globalization undermine the authority and power of the nation state? Why?(500 to 700 words)
