This paper critically evaluates the globalization paradigm in the social sciences and its limitations in terms of theories of the nation-state, migration and cultural identity. It notes the rise of populist political parties and movements worldwide and considers whether we could be witnessing a reversal of globalization trends for the first time since the 1960s. This "post-global" scenario is one of four considered in the paper.
