Cosmopolitan Communications:
Cultural Diversity in a Globalized World

Pippa Norris, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Societies have experienced a flood of information from diverse channels originating far beyond local communities and even national borders, transmitted through the rapid expansion of mass communications. This is a core component of the broader phenomenon of globalization. The late twentieth century witnessed a decisive shift in the scale, density, and velocity of interactions which cut across the territorial boundaries of the nation-state. These profound changes are widely observed. But the consequences - especially the impact of the penetration of the mass media into geographically-isolated cultures which were previously stranded at the periphery of modern communication grids - are far from clear. A new study tries to give answers based on empirical evidence from the World Values Survey, which covers 90 societies worldwide from 1981 to 2007.
