This thesis critically analyses claims to globality and universalism in the contemporary globalization ideologies; neoliberalism, cosmopolitanism, and alter-globalism. Employing a scale from nationalist, via internationalist, to planetarist, the conclusion is that neither of the ideological discourses have become notably engaged with a truly global conception of world politics. Instead they largely remain committed to internationalism understood as cooperation among nations. This is an important finding in light of the many claims to globality made both by participants in the diverse discourses and their scholarly critics. But crucially signs of an emerging planetarist mode of thinking is registered.
