Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book focuses on a condition where, in some ways and at varying degrees, people are involved in activities and allegiances which run across state boundaries. This condition impacts on both individuals who see themselves affiliated to a transnational diaspora and others who do not but live among many others who do. Transnationalism, is certainly of an important contribution of its own to the growing and uncoordinated pace of change that characterizes contemporary societies. The word chaos, is applicable wherever different forces create a lack of coherence and dissensus regarding the social order, and basic uncertainty as to its further development. Globalization represents a kind of social, societal and global condition where chaos and gestalt interfere and crystallize new lines of reality, and where ?orderlessness" and structuration are, more than ever, inseparable.

Keywords: Globalization; transnational diaspora
