Abstract

Not long ago globalization had only one face, that of a restructured capitalist economy employing new information technologies to operate on a global scale (Castells, 2000). According to this interpretation of globalization, the global is represented as space dominated by the inexorable and homogenizing logic of global markets (Steger, 2002). In this neoliberal model, the market replaces the state and the individual, the community thus posing a bleak future for citizenship.
