We deal with operators which are monotone in several generalized sense. We show that if such property holds locally on the complement of a certain type of closed set, then the same property holds globally on the whole domain under some mild conditions. Our results extend similar statements already established for the classical Minty-Browder monotonicity. As applications we obtain some global generalized convexity results based on local generalized convexity property and some extra analytical requirements.

Keywords: Generalized monotone map, generalized convex function, locally generalized monotone operator, closed countable set.
