Measuring global interactions
Global Participation


•Global core and periphery
Describe and evaluate one of the following two globalization indices: the AT Kearney index or the KOF index, as a measure of global interaction. Describe how the globalization index may be represented spatially.


Discuss the spatial pattern of global interactions through the mapping of core areas at the focus of interaction (network hubs/nodes), the peripheries and areas relatively unaffected by these interactions.
What is globalisation?
Write your own definition for globalisation.
Now compare it to the IB definition. What are the similarities and differences?
