Conclusion: Globalization and Inequality

  • Jan Nederveen Pieterse
Part of the Frontiers of Globalization Series book series (FOG)


It follows from the premise of this collection, ‘linking global trends with empirical realities in understudied settings’ (Rehbein, 1), that the approaches and findings of the chapters range across a wide spectrum. One would expect a degree of cognitive dispersal and treatments that differ because the settings, the datasets and/or the approaches are different. I will tease out some of the arguments here.
