  • Creates an urge of preservation for the unique cultures to reinforce and keep cultural traditions

Negative cultural effects of globalization

  • Causes misrepresentation, stereotyping and the risk of loss of cultural and intellectual property rights
  • Greater access to commercial media and products can "drown out" local cultural influences
