Do the current changes of both geographical and symbolic boundaries lead to the emergence of a world society? How do transnational migration, communication and worldwide economic and political networks manifest themselves in globalised modernity?

Practicable methodologies complete theoretical inquiries and provide examples of applied research, which also might be used in teaching.
