Globalization (or globalisation) is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture.

Globalization (or globalisation) in its literal sense is a social change, an increased connectivity among societies and their elements due to transculturation; the explosive evolution of transport and communication technologies to facilitate international cultural and economic exchange. The term is applied in various social, cultural, commercial and economic contexts. "Globalization" can mean:

* The formation of a global village - closer contact between different parts of the world, with increasing possibilities of personal exchange, mutual understanding and friendship between "world citizens",
* Economic globalization - more freedom of trade and increasing relations among members of an industry in different parts of the world (globalization of an industry),
* The negative effects of for-profit multinational corporations - the use of substantial and sophisticated legal and financial means to circumvent the bounds of local laws and standards, in order to leverage the labor and services of unequally-developed regions against each other.
