Globalisation is the growing interdependence, integration and interaction among people and corporations in disparate locations around the world. It is an umbrella term which refers to a complex of economic, trade, social, technological, cultural and political interrelationships. While being a complex and multifaceted array of phenomena, globalisation can be broken down into separate aspects: 

Globalisation or internationalisation has become identical with a number of trends, most of which may have developed or accelerated since World War II. These include greater international movement of commodities, money, information, and people; and the development of technology, organisations, legal systems, and infrastructures to allow this movement. The actual existence of some of these trends is debated. The characteristics of globalisation are: 

A. Spreading of multiculturalism, and better individual access to cultural diversity; 

B. Greater international travel and tourism; 

C. Greater immigration;

D. World-wide fads and pop culture such as Pok√©mon, Sudoku, Numa Numa, Origami, Idol series and 

E. World-wide sporting events such as FIFA World Cup. 

Negative effects of globalisation include cultural assimilation via cultural imperialism, the export of artificial wants, and the destruction or inhibition of authentic local and global: community, ecology and cultures. It is often argued that even terrorism has undergone globalisation, with attacks in foreign countries that have no direct relation with the attackers’ own country.
