Population Shuffle


Globalisation and globality alter existing patterns of culture and social organisation and bring about new ways of living. There is, however, much debate not only about the how and why of such changes, but also about what changes.

The emergence of complex patterns of migration, the concentration of large populations in 'centreless' urban environments, and the impact of information technologies that mediate work and leisure, kinship and friendship, travel, and culture, are all key, inter-linked aspects of globality.
