Abstract

 

Globalization is a complex and a multifaceted concept. Due to the fact that it cuts across almost all disciplines, each of the disciplines provides varying definitions and interpretations for the concept. In this paper, the focus is on the economic aspect of globalization. Globalization therefore is seen as increasing economic interdependence among the countries of the world. This interdependence has both positive and negative aspects. The present paper studies the negative aspect of globalization in the case of Niger Delta. While economic interdependence has facilitated the harnessing of the resources of the region but if one studies the overall activities of the multinational companies, one finds that they have contributed to the worsening of the economic conditions of the inhabitants of the Niger Delta. This has generated a feeling of deprivation which has found its outlet in various forms of conflicts.

Key Words: Globalization, Economic, Niger Delta, Poverty, Frustration, Conflicts
