One can only hope that it will also lead to the acceptance of a modicum of modesty when people proclaim that they need more time for the adjustments expected of them. This seems to indicate that, while emphasising ideal notions like the universality of humankind and equality certainly does no harm and has an important symbolic value, in social reality ‘on the ground’, diversity and plurality continue to be so important to people’s well-being that an ultimate ideal of global universality and absolute equality in all respects seems misguided as a blueprint for global development.
After much debate, the emerging assessment appears to be that globalisation is much more than one single phenomenon and is not actually moving the world in the direction of uniformity. On balance, the constant interaction between the global and the local creates more plurality rather than greater uniformity. The hybridisation inherent in globalisation processes leads to what Robertson (2003) calls ‘global localization’, which he also referred to as ‘glocalization’ (Robertson, 1995). Not surprisingly, there is now much controversy over conflicting visions of globality.

Globalization, the world over, does not have a cakewalk. Challenges given to it are by no means ordinary. There is always a fear that the nation-state would lose its identity and importance. And, who knows, the state itself would die.
