Globalization refers to the integration of economies, societies, and cultures across the world through increased communication, transportation, and trade. In the 20th century globalization accelerated with the growth of international trade, investment and migration, driven by technological advances such as the airplane travel, internet, the liberalization of trade, and other geo-political factors. However, since the early 2000s, there has been a growing sentiment against globalization due to its effects on job displacement, increased inequality, and concerns on cultural homogenization.

Some scholars and analysts point to rising nationalism, protectionist trade policies, and the decrease of international trade and travel (mostly due to COVID-19), as indicators that globalization is declining. And yet, some aspects of globalization seem to continuously grow, such as digitalization and e-commerce. So which is it - are we heading towards more globalization or less?
