Define: Globalization, “refers to the acceleration of capitalism’s global reach by the most powerful systems in the West, exploiting the most vulnerable people and environments in the world for economic gain, and invading other cultures with a western worldview which reproduces discrimination on a complex global level” (Ledwith,2005) Apply: Social workers and community developers/organizers need to be aware of globalization as it pertains to local issues. With the increase in technology there have been mobilization across global issues in local areas, an example is the mobilization for immigrant rights which is a transnational/global issue which has manifested itself in local xenophobia and local movements of solidarity for immigrant rights. Adapt: The ways in which Globalization has had a negative impact on developing countries is that manufacturers often will relocate outside of the United States and Europe in order to take advantage of other countries with little to no regulations in terms of labor or the environment.
