Enacting Globalization consists of a rich set of papers with a variety of disciplinary perspectives, focusing on globalization and its portrayal through International integration as manifested by its myriad flows such as people, trade, capital and knowledge flows. The chapters are grouped into seven key thematic areas: development, Europe, globalization flows, industries and enterprises, migrant activism, perspectives on emigration and immigration and rules and law. The structure of the book offers readers the opportunity to delve deep into critical facets of globalization while at the same delivering a panoramic view of globalization. The multi-disciplinary approach that is the essence of the approach adopted in the book enhances considerably the coverage of the diverse aspects of the enactment of globalization.

Enacting Globalization will be of significant educational value in terms of informing students and scholars alike on the enactment of globalization by providing them with deep insights and multiple perspectives on critical elements of the globalization process while at the same time offering learning on globalization in its full expanse.
