Critical Analysis Of Globalization On Democracy And Security Of A Developing Nation

By Abhinav Viswanath, School of Law CHRIST (Deemed to be University).*


Globalization, as a phenomenon characterized by increased interconnectedness and interdependence among nations, has brought significant changes to the world, including its impacts on democracy and security. Globalization has had both positive as well as negative impacts on the security and democracy in a nation. The same has drawn the perspectives of renowned scholars such as Thomas Pogge, John Rawls, and Amartya Sen. Pogge argues that globalization has contributed to global inequality, leading to the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few, thereby undermining democratic governance and exacerbating security challenges, particularly in developing countries. Rawls emphasizes the importance of fair distribution of global resources and opportunities for democratic participation to ensure security and stability, but highlights that globalization has often perpetuated disparities and inequalities, limiting the access of marginalized groups to resources and democratic processes. Sen underscores the role of democratic governance and inclusive institutions in addressing security challenges, but points out that globalization can erode the sovereignty of nations and undermine democratic decision-making processes.

This paper critically examines the arguments put forth by Pogge, Rawls, and Sen, and highlights the negative impact of globalization on democracy and security. It underscores the challenges posed by globalization in terms of exacerbating inequalities, limiting access to resources and opportunities, and undermining democratic governance and decision-making processes. The paper also highlights the implications of these negative impacts for social justice, stability, and security in the global landscape. The insights from Pogge, Rawls, and Sen's perspectives contribute to a nuanced understanding of the negative impact of globalization on democracy and security, and call for policies and actions that promote equitable distribution of resources, inclusive institutions, and democratic governance in a globalized world.
