This paper analyzes the reasons and processes that blur the importance of the nation state in the global era and looks at how the causes behind this disquieting effect are global economic, political and social changes. It describes how the global economy and the rise of international corporations are affecting the disappearance of nation states and discusses the political changes which have led to a shift in control from national leaders to independent entrepreneurs. Finally, this paper recognizes that the world is indeed getting smaller, which may be beneficial to individuals, but questions the impact on the future of nation states.

From the Paper:

"The globalization process has had impact on the disappearance of the nation state, which was replaced by the concept "global citizenship". The globalization process is one that has a lot of controversy around it. On one hand it causes products, fortune, human- beings, technology and ideas to cross boundaries in a world process that in the end unifies and cancels internationals frontiers. On the other hand people in different places in the world are still relying on their gender, racial and national belonging and lack of equality continues to exist. Globalization, by definition, refers to a multi- dimensional system of social processes that creates, stretches and thickens reciprocity dependence relationships worldwide, and creates an increasing awareness among people about deepening local and distance relations. "
