Globalization is the process of international integration arising from the

in transportation, such as the steam locomotive, steamship, jet engine, container
ships, and communications infrastructure, have been major factors in globalization,
generating further interdependence of economic and cultural activities.

The concept of globalization is a very recent term, only establishing its current
meaning in the 1970s, which emerged from the intersection of four interrelated sets
of "communities of practice": academics, journalists, publishers/editors, and
librarians. In 2000, the International Monetary Fund identified four basic aspects of
globalization: trade and transactions, capital and investment movements, migration
and movement of people, and the dissemination of knowledge. Further,
environmental challenges such as global warming, cross-boundary water and air
pollution, and over-fishing of the ocean are linked with globalization. Globalizing
processes affect and are affected by business and work organisation,
economics, socio-cultural resources, and the natural environment.
