Prompted by technological and scientific advances and the experience of recent global phenomena (political, climatic, postcolonial, humanitarian, historic, economic, social, martial, cultural, ethical, industrial, financial, cinematic, etc.), scholars and specialists are developing new models and tools to improve their understanding of inclusiveness, interdependence and interconnectedness.

  • How to bring two or more constituents or components that compete against each other into contact, acknowledgment or even cooperation
