This study of global interactions has a broader perspective than a more conventional study of globalisation that emphasises a linear process involving the domination and the imposition of Western culture on the world.

In the context of this syllabus, global interaction suggests a two-way and complex process whereby cultural traits and commodities may be adopted, adapted or resisted by societies. The process is neither inevitable nor universal.
