Abstract: Like all regions of the world, Southern Europe and the largerMediterranean area are under the sway of the phenomenon commonly referred to as globalization, a process that, strictly speaking, has always been a feature of the capitalist mode of production characterized by periodical economic reorganization and an ongoing quest for the exploration of new markets. In fact, it is more appropriate, in the present historical conjuncture, to use the phrase, “the intensification of globalization.” This intensification is brought about through developments in the field of information technology. It is a period in which mobility occurs at different levels. There is the constant threat of the “flight of capital” in a scenario where the process of production is characterized by dispersal and cybernetic control.We also witness the mobility of workers within and beyond the region. People from the south move up north in search of newopportunities.
