The main assumption of global studies is to concentrate on globalization as a main research and teaching subject. It does not analyse globalization from the point of view of the national state. Instead, global studies put globalization in the centre and study it as a complex and autonomous process which imposes the specified and similar conditions to all national and international actors. Global Studies are hardly defined by the assumptions and methods of any of contemporary sciences. Instead, they have a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary character, as they combine diverse theoretical approaches of economy, international relations, political sciences, anthropology, sociology, area studies, cultural and ethnic studies, but also some elements of natural sciences such as the earth and life sciences or physics.
