Abstract: The objective of this paper is ou r intention to present what are the main connections between
globalization and international security. In terms of global security we can perceive the globalization as a
process by which global state is represented by the UN, with a single world system, represented by major
security organizations and with global effects. We will present from the beginning the main theoretical
aspects that d efine the phenomenon of globalization, and then our contribution in assessing the implications
of this phenomenon on the regional and global security. The results of our research are materialized in the last
part of the paper. They emphasize the personal assessments on how the phenomenon of globalization has
direct effect on global security. When talking about government, we think of norms, rules and decision-
making procedures in the management of international life. The value that we add to the new scientific
interpretation of the definition of globalization is represented, primarily, by the valuable bibliographic used
resources and the original approach on the concept that refers to the links between globalization and security.
This article may be, at any time, a starting point in an interesting research direction in the field of global
Keywords: integrator process; UN; connecting markets and world affairs; multinational.
1. Introduction
If we were to define the globalization process according to its extent or scope of deployment we could
say that it resembles a transformation process (magnification). In this way, the local, national or
regional processes (activities) increase, they become global. In this way we are witnessing a large
scale phenomenon due to which the human society is united and works as a whole community. Above
all benefits or drawbacks of globalization, reference to that concept must be correlated with the notion
of interdependence. Globalization is a subcategory of interdependence, as a means of manifestation for
her. Metaphorically speaking, the globalization is defying the territories and borders.
Regarding the role and mechanisms of international organizations, it is useful a brief presentation of
political globalization. In this area, globalization “is visible in the spread of constitutional
arrangements, in increasing the number of countries which have become democratic also in
developing international rules and institutions”.
