Acting in globalisation: conditions and guidelines for collective action
Keywords:Globalização, desenvolvimento, democracia
AbstractGlobalisation demands collective agency. This is the starting point of the article. First, it considers the ongoing changes regarding space-time and the resources for action. It points out that inequalities vis-à-vis mobility constitute a new and critical dimension of the social divide. Secondly, the article focuses on the prospects for collective agency in the context of globalisation, both for the regulation of its unbalances and for its embeddedness in social and political structures. Finally, one suggests that a perspective defined by the key values of democracy, justice and development can design a useful framework to formulate an agenda for international reform and to identify possible protagonists.
