Globalization and the Apocalypse

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Are we experiencing the end of the age of globalization? The question, of course, is unfair, particularly if you think of globalization as a long-term historical process detached from debates around modernity, postmodernity, and the like. Yet for many commentators, it is a meaningful and important one. In this article, the author explores the relationship between discourses of globalization and apocalyptic narratives, drawing attention to the emergence of globalization theory in debates around the “end of ideology,” “end of history,” “end of organized capitalism,” and “end of the nation-state,” and to more contemporary discussions around the crises of capitalism, human rights, liberal democracy and the internationalist Left which to some signal the end of the globalizing project.
