“Like travellers navigating an unknown terrain”: Seyla Benhabib on rights and the borders of belonging
Todd, Sharon
Across many disciplines, including education, a certain love–hate relation has developed with globalization, swinging between hopeful exuberance and tragic lamentation, with many perspectives precariously balanced between the two. The particular contours of this relation have, of course, taken shape quite differently according to the specific issues arising out of the various disciplines, and have covered myriad issues such as the deleterious effects of global capital, the threats facing the natural environment, the opportunities afforded by information technology, the breaking up of the nation-state, and the hybridization of culture and identity, to name but a few. Not merely an academic matter, however, this focus on globalization has flourished in the context of current social movements and political policies that attempt to grapple with the broad range of conditions that mark civil life within and across borders.
