Abstract: (From the text): "In this brief address (which is meant to be provocative rather than substantive, and which I hope will lead to further discussions at this conference and beyond) I am going to, first, consider some of the different and often contending uses of the term globalization. Then I will touch upon the notion of global institutions and what knowledge production, principally in the formal sphere, has to do with the framing of that notion. Following this I will survey some implications for research agendas, particularly on the possibility of international cooperation on environmental problems, and end with some suggestions and comments."
