For more than 20 years, concept of globalization has been used as a major source of data in evaluating economic, social, cultural and political events. According to a widely accepted definition, globalization refers to a process in which all barriers of capital are removed. Despite this definition, in the backbone of globalization there exists the willingness of global political actors to spread their political initiatives to the global scale. Since all social events naturally carry economic, political and cultural phenomenon, it seems to be a fundamental mistake to limit globalization to only economic factors. Therefore globalization can be understood as a process of building a new world by the western global actors in terms of economic, political and cultural spheres.
