Despite the fact that the term "globalization" has been present in anthropology and neighboring disciplines only since around 1990, it has spawned an impressive range of books, journal articles and academic conferences. Globalization can be studied in its economic, political, ecological, or cultural aspects, and there is a rich scholarly literature, much of it interdisciplinary, dealing with the subject. The present chapter focuses on the construction of ethnic/ national identities - especially taking into account the current migrant crisis in Europe, but also some recent political events (like the "Brexit" referendum in the UK), on the relationship between globalization and multiculturalism, as well as on the media influence in creating a global public opinion with certain types of values and orinetations.
