Effects of Globalization on Developing Radicalism among Youth

Auther : Ahmed J. Abul Al-Kandary

The term globalization - widely researched and used all along more than one decade - expresses a global change in the vision of world economics, politics and ethics on national and trans-national borders. The term is also related to identity, collective or national or even societal in terms of a conflict between the weaker and the stronger nations economically, politically, technologically and informatically. For the weaker ones, globalisation is thought to be a monstre, a supranational, supernatural phenomenon, thought to perilous to youth, prime amongst whom are Muslim and Arab youth who fear it. This study, therefore, seeks to investigate globalization in terms of what the concept means, its features and causes, trends, and scope and sequence. Further, the study tackles the situation of young people vis-ب-vis globalization, and how they are affected by radicalism and globalism against their ideological and Islamic backdrop, their value systems and ethics, and their national belongings. Given this situation, the study tackles how youth have become susceptible to radicalism and fundamentalism, highlighting the political and social underpinnings of radical ideology at socio-politico-economical levels, and at the state and security levels of developing countries. These countries now believe that they are not safe from the bad effects of globalisation, and its perils of radical ideologies that have already affected youth intellectually beyond national borderlines to the detriment of these countries culturally, socially, and intellectually. Implications and recommendations imply that developing nations need to devise new methods to interact positively with the effects of globalisation in order to sustain national identity and protect national resources from being plundered to the advantage of developed countries.

Key words: Globalization - Radicalism - Identity conflict - Youth - Modernity - Traditionalism.
