« Globalisation » is a word that comes up much more often than others in debate topics. For some, nothing better than globalization (and the liberalizing process that comes with it) could happen to us. On the other side, globalisation's detractors hold it responsible for a great number of the planet's problems such as poverty or underdevelopment and they also believe it will lead us to a disaster if we continue that way.

First of all, we must shortly define what is meant with globalisation : it is the process of creating one world where everything is interconnected, where one country better be in contact with the rest of the world in order to achieve good living conditions.

Hence, until now we have seen that people all over the world are affected by globalisation and that depending on their position they can achieve different things about it. We also saw that a few people have changed the course of events, at least on a short timescale. [...]
