New communication systems permit individuals to interact within, and gain access to, diverse social environments thanks to which they are able to bridge geographic boundaries that previously impeded contact, making possible what once was impossible. This is one of the primary objectives of this research, oriented towards understanding globalization within this context. Globalization refers to distinct processes and dimensions, responds to secular historical trends with identifiable backgrounds; is irregular, that is to say, its impact is variable in different countries and circumstances, such as in terms of the position of the State in the global political and military situation; the position of the State in the international division of labor; and the internal consolidation of the nation-state institutions among others.
