Worldwide cultural diffusion along with economic globalization is ever
widening the boundaries of an individual and a group’s homeworld as alien
cultures are absorbed into each other. This process is called the
mundialization of home. The spherical movement of capitals, goods,
technology and workforce across national borders is also accompanied by
spread of ideas, beliefs, values and customs among diverse cultures, and
as people in newly emerging market societies are being brought to
self-awareness as individual citizens, they have begun to address issues
of individual freedom, social justice, human rights, global environmental
change and civil society.
