Abstract Family ties are arguably of particular importance in an era of globalization, where ideological and material changes in national and global arena intersect with personal choices and decisions that influence family life. As globalization proceeds, so do the choices, dilemmas, opportunities, threats and outcomes that are followed by the dynamic process of globalization. This study determines the links of global interactions with family ties using cross-sectional and panel data sets over the period 1980–2014. The global integration is measured using three dimensions of globalization that are economic, social and political globalization. The empirical results show that overall globalization negatively affects family ties. However, this effect varies depending upon the measures of globalization. Economic and social globalizations negatively influence family ties while the role of political globalization is insignificant. Moreover, the results of social globalization are relatively more conducive and strong. Finally, results also suggest that income inequality tends to negatively influence the strength family ties. Findings of the study are robust to different specifications, alternative estimation methods and various control variables.
