Title: he Impact of Global Connectedness on Urban Areas
Lead Author: Geller, Daniel
Abstract: Wayne State University faculty in the Social, Behavioral and Economic (SBE) sciences propose that the NSF SBE division fund primarily individual grants aimed at understanding the impact of global connectedness on urban areas. One example is the vulnerability of urban areas to weapons of mass destruction (WMD), made easier by the increasing permeability of states. Investigators in this area strive to understand, predict and ameliorate the behaviors and actions of individuals, groups and nations intent on acquiring, building and using WMD. Another example of the impact of global connectedness on urban areas is how the flow of socioeconomic and political ideas, businesses, technology and labor forces cross national boundaries and impact societal processes and functions. Investigators in this area study topics including how individuals and societies impacted by global changes such as multinational corporations, technology, and migrant work forces are affected, socially, economically, politically, and the response of individuals, societies and governments.
