This paper reviews and analyzes the case study titled "Globalization" by Cate Malek, which was written in response to World Trade Organization protests. The paper develops a detailed assessment of the positive and negative aspects of globalization and its effects. The paper asserts that the hospitality industry is well poised to realize the full breadth of the conflict associated with globalization than the hospitality industry as it is at the pinnacle of change and hosts agents of change on both sides of the discussion. The paper also critically examines the case study, and makes suggestions as to how the hospitality industry can maximize the benefits of conflict and limit its costs to prevent, manage, settle, and resolve destructive conflicts. The paper concludes that Malek offers the reader a resolution that melds the two opposing forces together by attempting to build on the idea of debate and compromise; international dispute management is the reigning idea of Malek's thesis of non-intractability.

Constructive Debate/International Dispute Management Systems
Conclusion and Recommendations

From the Paper:

"Though as Malek contends, the conflicts surrounding globalization are many and varied, their intractable nature makes it important that as many of the benefits be supported as possible, and more importantly, that negative aspects of globalization be minimized, much of which she believes can occur through constructive debate, (July, 2005, para.2-3) debates that will be supported in many ways by the hospitality industry as the most logical host to participants and conversations. Quality will be the key in this hosting as well as the development of all other prospects for growth in a global market."
