La globalización social, económica y jurídica.

IV International Conference on Sociology of Public and Social Policies
Social, Economical and Legal Globalization

MAY 23—24, 2019

Globalization has been a topic of discussion in all fields and disciplines for some decades now. Thoughts and opinions in favor and against have not diminished, but continue to increase... Why? Why do diagnostics and predictions differ so much? How much description and how much prescription is there in relation to globalization? Do theoreticians hide their ideologies behind a term that seems to accommodate the most varied consequences and manifestations? What in reality is globalization? Ideology? Idolatry? Propaganda? What effects does it have on public and social policies?

Perhaps it's time to carry out an analysis devoid of conceptual traps or raise awareness of its existence and reveal what lies behind the concept of globalization. Whether it expands alone and by itself or or whether it isn't so alone. This involves first observing manifestations of globalization in both the social framework as well as in economic, financial, and legal frameworks, in order to then analyze the analysts. It is important to contribute to revealing the theoretical and ideological tautologies that may be being used.

Differentiating the tendencies of contemporary thought at this point hardly requires justification since our present seems to revolve around the time-worn subject of globalization. It requires a perspective that integrates the social sciences to raise questions, collect data and formulate conclusions. Sociology, social psychology, economics, social work and law provide specific accents that make it possible to put forward proposals to improve not only the quality or effectiveness of democracy but also its survival.

The shadow of past perversions, sustained by forms of diverse populism, appears as a threat on the horizon. The powerful emergence of new global actors, the weakness of some States, the lukewarmness of the International Community, the dubious democratic drift of certain societies and Administrations has caused an upset in socio-economic and legal dynamics that seemed consolidated. However, the data show that they are not. Thinking collectively and and across disciplines is another of the demands and consequences that globalization has brought with it.

In this context we would like to re-discuss public and social policies. It is a challenge to identify the extent to which ideology, idolatry or propaganda is constructing the available social space. Globalization is used as a pretext to delimit the boundaries in which one or other policies develop. Questions relating to education, health, income and employment remain urgent. Rigorous and in-depth study of public policies and their effects in a world that is said to be more and more globalized continues to be necessary.
