We are living in a time of unprecedented change -- of genuinely global change. People throughout the world are increasingly affected by common developments such as the introduction of new technologies, increased economic competition, global climate change, rapid urbanization, shifting gender roles, political violence, environmental degradation, and the persistence of hunger and disease. It is essential that we understand that global change is not a uniform process -- that people everywhere do not experience change in the same way. Indeed, certain aspects of global change can affect some people more than others, and it can have very different consequences for people living in different settings.
