Re-globalization: An Array of Factors Shaking the Fundamentals of Neoliberal Globalization

  • 152 Accesses

Part of the Culture and Religion in International Relations book series (CRIR)

Abstract

Despite their importance for the destiny of globalization, global pandemics, financial and economic crises are not all that drives the current trend toward re-globalization, be it constructive (i.e., positively building) or deconstructive (i.e., implemented through dialectics of negativity, dismantling what is not working well). Borderless societies have set free a huge mobilization of people, both as migrants and voyagers. In the eyes of many populations around the world, along with a recent “mobility turn” of often para-religious traits (mobility is treated as an absolute value), these factors have step by step created an “exaggerated” openness and neoliberal boundlessness.
