Not all effects of globalization are positive; not all non-state actors are good.

3 Political science has also contributed to the conceptualisation of transnational space in non-economic terms. Axford's (2001) work on transnational networks, Scholte's (2001) conceptualisation of global civil society, and Held et al's(1999) "global transformations" thesis are particularly worthy of note.
4 According to Robertson (2001), "The current tendency to regard globalization in more or less exclusively economic terms is a particularly disturbing form of reductionism, indeed of fundamentalism. Nowadays invocation of the word 'globalization' almost automatically seems to raise issues concerning so-called economic liberalism, deregulation, privatisation, marketization and the crystallization of what many call a global economy."
