Abstract

As we look forward into the mid 21st century, demographers forecast dramatic increases in cultural diversity in the general population of the globe, which will also be reflected in increasing aging populations. Globalization is a complex phenomenon which includes increased human interconnectedness facilitated by new information technologies and huge volumes of trade, capital, people, cultures flowing across national borders, and an evermore integrated global economy. Globalization can be experienced as structural forces impinging on our daily lives, as the creation of new spaces and connectivity between locales and also as ideological resources (Burawoy et al, 2000).
