This chapter looks at political globalisation — the extension of political power and political activity across the boundaries of the nation state. It also examines the impact of globalisation on corporate agency power before examining, before looking at the social policy agenda of international business. This is important, since international business opinion helps to shape social policy discourse and welfare outcomes at various levels of governance.

Keywords: political power; political activity; corporate agency power; international business; governance
