As the first decade of the twenty-first century comes to an end, the world continues to experience many developments in technology and in the creation of wealth, yet it still faces many dire challenges stemming from social inequalities and global poverty. While particular attention has been given to globalisation, few works have examined it in the context of urbanisation and urban schools. This book examines the impacts and influences of globalisation on nations, communities and social institutions, as well as how it is simultaneously being shaped by a counter-flow of countries and social organisations.
