Therefore, globalization is defined as the complex web of forces and factors that have brought people, cultures, cultural products, and markets, as well as beliefs and practices into increasingly greater proximity to and interrelationship with one another within inequitable relations of power. Four facets of globalization—economic, political, cultural and ideological globalization—are examined with a focus on the intercultural communication dimensions of each.
