'There is much to commend in this collection of papers to those interested in both globalization per se as well as those interested in economic and social development in South-east Asia.' - David N. Ashton, Asia Pacific Business Review The impact of globalisation on social development is a critical issue for both developed and developing countries. In Globalisation and Social Development, leading experts investigate this from the perspective of European, and more specifically, Southeast Asian economies including Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.
Focuses on the globalization-democratization nexus and shows how governance is being restructured and democracy sometimes deepened in this new global era.
This third volume of three accepts that globalization is both the context within which Southeast Asian countries must function and is a process which governments and businesses have embraced. The focus of this text is on how the phenomenon of globalization has affected individuals' well-being and the community security.
