Times and Spaces of Globalization

The global market, where different forms of production combine and produce different and yet synchronized temporalities, increasingly produces differentiation between as well as within state boundaries and a juridical space characterized by discrimination and inequalities.

The multi-dimensional character of globalizing processes – affecting the economy, political experience, religious and social practices – and the interplay among different spheres of human activity, challenge our capacity to read and understand phenomena unless we adopt adequate inter-disciplinary approaches and develop necessary knowledge that enables us to interpret social realities from different points of view.
