Gendering Globalization

    Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingReport chapterCommunication


    The current global financial situation bluntly and brutally brings home the fact that the global and local are closely connected in times of opportunity as well as crises. The articles in this issue of Asia Insights are about ontra-action between Asia, particularly China, and the Nordic countries. Intra-action is the word used by feminist theorist Karen Barad about phenomena that mutually integrate and affect each other, as opposed to interaction between seperate entities. The articles emphasise that we can no longer study Asia as a far away entity. On the contrary, Asia and the Bordic countries are mutually present within each other in the forms pf flows of people, capital, production, product and ideas.
