'Vulnerability' is now a key term in globalisation studies. It is
used to describe how globalisation impacts on individual security,
local communities and even global flows of trade, finance and
investment. Yet there has been little attempt to interrogate the
term and what it is trying to express about globalisation.Peadar
Kirby examines what is really meant by 'vulnerability' and links it
to new forms of violence that have resulted from decreased security
and social cohesion. He argues that vulnerability and violence are
characteristic features of a new world order dominated by
neoliberal globalisation. Illustrating his argument with a wealth
of examples taken from all over the world -- from the sudden
collapse of the middle class in Argentina to increased levels of
poverty internationally -- he offers a robust theoretical grounding
that will be of use to anyone studying vulnerability and violence
and their relation to contemporary globalisation.
