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: As cosmopolitan ideologies and programmatic concerns overdetermine our thinking, global dissent and discipline increasingly appear as political encounters. To make material sense of the spectacle of global politics, we have to look into the situated actions of actually existing social forces. Only then can we begin to understand how global subjects may be making themselves on the terrain of the world economy, and how they may be getting made. What is at stake is nothing less than the possibility of presence on the terrain of the world economy. ‘Global discipline and dissent in the longue durée’ is part of a broader theoretical project informed by historical research on a wide variety of movements of resistance against world ordering --- from slave and coolie revolts at the beginning of the 19th century to IMF riots and gas and water wars at the end of the twentieth. In it, I come to distinguish between two modes of relation to the world economy. In creative severance, social life gets resolved before being taken to the world economy and a docile global subject gets made that carries a false, reified, sense of itself. In the dialectics of presence, the whole of everyday life gets taken unresolved to the world economy.

Abstract: The string of massive disasters both nature -caused and man -caused experienced by human societies over the last 25 years,has called attention and sharpened cognizance of states and international organizations to the urgent need for effective management mechanisms for pre-disaster preparedness and post-disaster coping .This paper offers a bold proposition for responding to this global challenge.It suggests the construction of an institutionalized global regime ,involving all or most state actors, that will coordinate and direct all efforts at preparedness and coping by a single central authority.The regime will assist in dealing with dissasters affecting both single countries and transboundry crises.

The paper sets out the range of issues that will have to be address by this Global Disassters Management(GDM) regime.It analyses the interface among the political ,psychological,societal ,economic and legal dimensions of these issues.It then argues that a holistic institutional approach is superior to ad- hoc mechanisms for disaster management.

Abstract: I develop a critical constructivist evolutionary theory of international financial institutions and arrangements. Specifically, I analyze the role of IMF under the present globalization moves and repeated financial crises by following such a critical constructivist evolutionary theory of international financial institutions. Furthermore, the potential for reforms in the wake of the global financial crisis and the great recession is analyzed from a dialectical social constructivist viewpoint that combines the power of --sometimes conflicting--- norms and ideas with the underlying structural contradictions to produce a “critical-constructivist” analysis of the potential for change. It is shown that IMF must and can change in a direction which allows for greater national policy autonomy. It is also shown that the IMF needs complementary regional institutions of cooperation in order to create a stabilizing hybrid global financial architecture that will be more democratic and Keynesian-Kaleckian in terms of its theoretical underpinnings. Thus regional financial architectures will need to be integral parts of any new global financial architecture(GFA).The tentative steps taken towards regional cooperation in Asia since Asian financial crisis are discussed to illustrate the opportunities and challenges posed by the need to evolve towards a hybrid GFA. The opportunities and challenges arising from the current global crisis are analyzed in this context.
