Key ConceptRelated ConceptsGlobal Context Time, Place and Space Governance Globalization Orientation in Time and Space Statement of Inquiry The movement of people, trade, ideas and resources across time and space has resulted in a more interconnected and interdependent world.

Governance Governance refers to mechanisms and processes that control authority in a given organization. It can apply to state and non-state institutions. Throughout time, people have organized governments in order to meet the needs of communities and individuals. Groups have created institutions and processes that have many forms and functions. Monarchies, republics, tribes, parliaments, presidents, dictators: these and other patterns of rule express a range of human values and reflect varied understandings of history and culture. At the heart of governance are questions about the distribution of resources, the making of laws, and the balance of power between individuals and the communities in which they live. Democratic governments are accountable to the people who choose them.
Globalization As a related concept, globalization encompasses local, national and global repercussions and expectations for our “shrinking” world. It has been characterized by some geographers as a process of time–place convergence and it is characterized by an increasing interdependence among peoples and nations. The cultural, political and economic interconnectedness of the global economy is an undeniable trend that has been amplified by rapid improvements in technology and communication systems. Globalization can be simultaneously positive and negative for people and the natural environment depending on the range of changes that result and the perspective of the analyst. Globalization as a concept has also been questioned by some who have preferred to speak of processes of “westernization”, “glocalization” or “mundialization”.
