Since the introduction of the concept of globalization, the world has changed drastically. Even though it received a lot of resistance especially from the less developed countries, eventually it found its way and prevailed. One of the many areas where globalization played a significant role is changing the political structure and governance of many countries in the world. Political globalization is defined as the growing of a country’s political system and its institutions worldwide, including trading activities and the emergence of other organizations, both national and internationa. The most surprising emerging concept of political globalization is the growing number of countries’ membership in the United Nations (UN). During its inception, the UN had only 51 member states, but today, the number has increased to 193. Since its formation with an objective of fostering peace, the UN has helped many countries in realizing other goals.
Thus, through the unity of nations, it is now possible to achieve global peace. Despite the benefits that come with political globalization, there are still detrimental aspects that needs to be reconfigured. Ideological differences is one of the effects that have emerged as a result of political globalization. Different countries have different ideologies, such as, capitalism, democracy and even socialism. However, powerful nations in many cases, try to influence the weaker countries by spreading their ideologies with an objective of giving aids in return. To deal with this issue, global governing bodies need to put in place enough measures and enact policies that will help prevent such occurrence in future In conclusion, it is evident that globalization has brought numerous changes in the world. Political globalization, being one of the changes that has been brought, has helped many nations to gain peace and stability Despite the ideological differences that exist in many countries today, sovereignty needs to be respected.
