The Cultural Dynamics of Political Globalisation - HSFK
The globalisation measure is a weighted average of social, economic, and political globalisation. When this measure is unpacked into its three components, we see that both social globalisation (a measure that includes personal contacts, information flows, and cultural proximity) and economic globalisation (measured by restrictions on trade and capital such as tariff rates, and by actual flows of trade and investments) have positive effects on religious legislation and discrimination, while the effect of political globalisation is statistically insignificant. In addition, we find that the number of minority religions is positively related to religious legislation and religious discrimination. That is, all else being constant, as the visibility of minority religions in a country increases, religious freedoms will be likewise curbed.

Stanley Hoffman elaborates the technological logic. Globalization, he says, has three forms. “First is economic globalization, which results from recent revolutions in technology, information, trade, foreign investment, and international business…Next comes cultural globalization. It stems from the technological revolution and economic globalization…Finally there is political globalisation, a product of the other two.”
