The world now decline is determined and acts in global terms. There is no longer a territorial space itself as a basis for action.

The trend is towards the deterritorialization. Today there are NGOs involved in specific fields in situations that occur anywhere in the world. This marks another type of organization that is involved in global processes, since they are integrated by people who belong to various nationalities.

There is a new way of being a citizen and in the refuge are intermingled in local with an intense involvement in the destiny of the whole planet.
