Term Definition
Global North

Instead of the hierarchical division into developed and developing countries or Third and First world we hereby use the concepts “Global South“ - “Global North”, not bearing any judgmental connotation. By writing them with a capital letter we want to make clear that we are dealing with a sociopolitical instead of a geographical concept. Global South hereby describes a position within the current world order that implies political and economic disadvantages. Global North on the other hand describes a currently advantaged and privileged position. (vgl glokal 2012, S. 4f.)
