Center for Advanced Studies contributes to
global-e journal with a new article series
"Re-Globalization. The new frontiers of Globalism"
Roland Benedikter, Co-Head of the Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research and
Ingrid Kofler, Senior Researcher at the Center are the editors of the
new article series "Re-Globalization. The new frontiers of Globalism" in
global-e, a global studies journal edited at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
Globalization as we knew it is undergoing a rupture. To respond to present-day globalization, Benedikter and Kofler propose
five basic options: refining, reframing, reforming, redefining and/or revisioning the current status and mechanisms, as well as the concepts and methodologies of 21st century globalization. These five R’s are not only the starting point for the
new article series
but also an introduction to a basic joint pattern of understanding the current phase of globalization with the scope to reconfigure its dynamics.
global-e is hosted by the
Mellichamp 21st Century Global Dynamics Initiative (GDI) and edited by Michael Curtin, Victor Faessel, as well as Janet Afary, Alison Brysk and Jan Nederveen Pieterse at the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies of the University of California, Santa Barbara, with support of the Global Studies Consortium.
