This paper provides a comparative economic history perspective on two significant periods of deglobalization: the Great Depression in the 1930s and the period following the Financial Crisis of 2008/9. The paper discusses differences and similarities and provides empirical results regarding the correlates of deglobalization, including the political system (institutions), level of development (GDP per capita) and the share of manufacturing.

2017/02 – German Development Institute, Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE); Discussion Paper 5/2017; Author(s): Giulio Regeni, Georgeta Vidican Auktor - Details

In this Discussion Paper we join a growing number of scholars to argue that changing global conditions call for a revital is ation of the debate on the role of the state in social and economic transformation in the 21st century. We focus on three main global challenges for economic development in the 21st century: climate change and environmental degradation; increased digital is ation (the increasingly ‘bit-driven’ economy); and changed policy space for individual states as a result of globalisation.

This paper presents the first in-depth analysis of the changing composition of the global income rich and the rising representation of developing countries at the top of the global distribution. We construct global distributions of income between 1988 and 2012 based on both household surveys and the new top incomes data derived from tax records, which better capture the rich who are typically excluded from household surveys.

2016/12 – Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS); Special Issue of Asian Focus; Author(s): NIAS - Details

This special issue on ‘family and gender in a globalising India’ is based on a seminar on the same topic held in Oslo in early 2016 at the initiative of the Norwegian Network for Asian Studies. The seminar provided the opportunity for several of the contributors to this issue to meet and discuss the ways in which the contradictory trends of globalisation have affected, or have failed to affect, changes to the institutions of family and gender.
