The transversal lines of the debates aim to capture the intercultural dimension of globalization through several questions that arose in the course of the seminar. The first part deals with globalization and the processes leading to it: Is globalization the acceleration of an already existing phenomenon? Is it our fate? Is it irreversible? Are we still the masters of the processes of globalization? What is our degree of control? Another line of reflection arose based on issues related to what is intercultural raised by economists and jurists attending the seminar. What does intercultural mean? Does itrefer to a set of problems, a place of exchange, to an existing space or perhaps to something in the process of being created? Does it refer to something found in concrete places? In the course of the debates one attempts to find an answer to these questions.
