Abstract:

This paper explores the relationship between globalization and personal integrity rights in lesser developed countries. It argues first, that in order to accurately assess the effects of global integration, we must disaggregate the phenomenon into its separate and distinctive parts. In particular, I focus on four areas of integration that form the basis of the phenomena of globalization: trade, financial, political, and technological interdependence. I explore the potential benefits and drawbacks of each for the promotion of political rights. Utilizing multiply imputed data, I analyze the effects of each facet of globalization on rights, finding that in fact they do have unique and even contradictory influences. In particular, I find that openness to trade and international communications decreases the rate of state repression in these states. On the other hand, a higher density of commitments to human rights regimes has a worsening effect on state repression. Foreign direct investment does not appear to have any significant influence in this area of human welfare.
