Globalization is a phenomenon, especially economic and cultural, through which the countries of the world are increasingly interconnected and, therefore, influence each other. In a world in the process of globalization, seemingly isolated events have a global impact. For example, a terrorist attack or a resounding bank failure can have an effect on a significant part of the world.
It was the information revolution that allowed globalization. The fact that television, radio, newspapers and the internet provide us with information about the entire planet, in real time, has led to the emergence of a global interconnection, in which everyone is concerned about everyone. To all this was added the ease with which man of the contemporary age can travel, mainly due to the development of commercial aviation.

A multipolar world, in the process of globalization and interconnected, thanks to the information revolution, has led to the emergence of a new cultural diversity. People from different cultures communicate at a distance or live together exchanging ideas, habits, etc. They know each other better and cooperate more and more, in the spirit of peace and solidarity. However, humanity still has many problems to overcome in this
century. These include weapons of mass destruction, wars, pollution, terrorism, crossborder crime and economic or health crises. Today, global problems require a global response, involving all nations and all cultures.
