Marginalization, Globalization and Regional and Local Responses

Commission C20.32 Marginalization, Globalization, and Regional and Local Responses

is one of 43 International Geographical Union (IGU) commissions.

The mission of the Commission is to research marginality and the processes of marginalization from different perspectives and with a geographical basis. The main focus is to better understand multiscalar relations between the globalization process and how marginality evolves at the local and regional levels. Moreover, we seek to improve our understanding of local and regional responses to different forms of marginality and marginalization processes.
