Evaluating Political Globalization
Is political globalization good or bad?
Good if…benefits are widely distributed (a system of cooperation)
Bad if…benefits are narrowly distributed (a system of domination)

Arab Fund for Economic & Social Development
International Olympic Committee
International Red Cross
Organization of African Unity
Or not – some would argue that these cooperative forms do no more than lower the costs of domination, thus enhancing the capacities of the big guys.
