Chapter Summary

The paradoxical relationship between marginality and globalization manifested in the international labor migration is well covered in the recent social science literature. By comparison, much less attention has been paid to a similar interrelationship between globalization and marginality that is manifested in another type of international travel, that which takes place for purposes of tourism. International tourism is another phenomenon intricately related to globalization. It feeds on the 'space-time contraction' that is an essential feature of globalization. The punch line of this chapter is that the paradoxical processes of intermingling marginality and globalization tend to reinforce identities at both the sub-national and the transnational levels more than at the national level.

Keywords: international labor migration; International tourism; marginality; transnational identity
