Abstract: Appeals for a multi-dimensional and multi/inter-disciplinary approach to the study of global systems still lose out to varieties of methodological nationalism; while disciplines shy away form much that is intellectually foreign. Through attention to the soft features of globalization and enacted globality (largely cultural and motivational phenomena and the realms of meaning)and to the disciplines that promote such approaches (Sociology, Cultural Studies; Social Anthropology, Communication Studies and some areas of Geography) this paper offers reworking of disciplinary paradigms and a remoinder that a frenetic search for appropriate indicators of globalization cannot be confined to economic or narrowly conceived governance phenomena. In this respect it provides the basis for a critical global studies, one which is concerned with the making, reproduction, and transformation of global systems – with globality as a “constitutive framework” for all social relations. Culture is an intriguing zone of analysis for students of globalizationsand global systems,because of its relative neglect or cavalier treatment by researchers ofall persuasions. The paper argues that we treat culture as more than shorthand for some exotic conjunctional features of current globalization, and examine cultural phenomena as part of a description of new forms of sociality constituted through global processes. In the latter guise, culture becomes the realm of shared meanings and purposive action in systemic relationshipsconstitutive of and dependent on larger processes of the global system.

Abstract: Within the modern, urban-centric, discourses on globalization the role of food and agriculture are under-theorized. This paper reconsiders the politics of food as the political face of world historical value relations. This perspective brings agriculture and food to the centre of analysis as global agriculture and food are inseparable from the reproduction of labor power. In an era characterized by the post-modern retreat into reified particularisms, the fetishization of the local, and the narrow preoccupation with the problematic of (over)consumption this paper argues for a return to the social problematic of labor and the local/global contextualization of its existence and reproduction. Consistent with the emerging literature on ‘critical globalization studies’ the alternative world historical methodology discussed in this paper possesses three advantages. First, it is self-consciously aware of the standpoint from which it sees the world, and thus capable of sustaining a theoretical and political project. Second, while emphasizing the world historical context of particular/local phenomena, its attention to the politics of social processes eschews ‘abstract globalism’ and the resulting macro/teleological narratives. And third, while profoundly interested in studying the particular and the concrete, it does not reify the latter as a given, and thus avoids the abstract particularism that characterize much of the post-modern fascination with reified locality and micronarratives. In this sense, the concepts such as ‘global value relations’, ‘global working day’, and ‘global worker’ are world-historically informed concepts posed at a less abstract level precisely to allow one to capture the ‘unity of the diverse.’

Abstract: This study aims to discover what makes individuals interculturally competent to work in global teams and to explore global mindset development and its relationship to cultural intelligence (CQ) and outcomes in global team collaboration. It was discovered that both CQ and accumulated experiences of individuals contribute to high levels of global mindset. A survey was conducted on a sample of 339 global team participants (from 10 universities in different parts of the globe, representing 44 distinct nationalities), the majority of whom were graduate students. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was employed to discover relationships between constructs. Global mindset was highly related to global team satisfaction and the intent to work in multicultural teams in the future. Global mindset also mediated the effects of Cultural intelligence and the experience abroad on the outcomes of: team satisfaction and future intent to work in multicultural teams. In other words, individuals with high CQ and who spent more time abroad and speak more languages are more likely to build this meta mindset that contributes to higher levels of satisfaction with collaboration in global teams. This mindset contributes to the intent to a future behavior: willingness to work in multicultural teams in the future. The findings confirm the importance of interactions with different others in building global mindset, even if the interactions and collaborations are not face-to-face but mediated by technology.
Keywords: cultural intelligence, global mindset, global teams, collaboration, intercultural competence

Abstract: At first glance, private military companies, non-governmental organizations and terrorist organizations belong to totally separate categories. In reality, they differ surprisingly little in terms of functions, organization and even purpose. From the standpoint of the state, they all share the common characteristic of being non-state actors which potentially threaten to overthrow existing states and the inter-state system to which they belong. By comparing these three groups of non-state actors based on research especially of the former two, this paper considers their impacts on the traditional international security system, and the prospects of whether they are conducive to giving birth to human security in global public sphere.
In consideration of this problem, the presentation will use the analytical framework of global governance, global public sphere, GASC: global armed societal conflict and human security. In this analytical framework, a PMC is presumed as one of armed non-state actors to cope with GASCs in global public sphere under human security as global public security by global governance.
