With the effect of the globalization process, the number of anti-democratic political regimes and closed economic systems are decreasing gradually, and the communication and transportation opportunities and means are developing at an unprecedented level in the world. Contrary to popular belief, this process, called globalization, is not only in the field of economic activities but also in politics, culture and art. Distances are getting shorter. Everyone and everywhere are easily accessible. Local standards evolve and gain international dimensions. Cultures interact deeply, crossbred and scale up. A product, a cultural work or an idea that can appear anywhere in the world can quickly reach other places. Companies are now making economic plans not only for their domestic markets but also for the whole world. Problems in domestic policy, especially about human rights, can turn into world issues immediately. This attracts the attention of other states and international organizations, can be a cause for concern and intervention or excuse. The phenomenon of globalization also adds new elements and dimensions to the activities of non-governmental organizations. International non-governmental organizations that do not use public authority but have great reputation and cross-border manpower support can be effective in competing with states in many areas ranging from human rights violations to environmental problems. In short, while the world is getting more and more integrated in every aspect in every period of our life, on the other hand, the phenomenon of localization can challenge this spread.
