THE URBAN WAY OF LIFE AND SOCIOECONOMIC DIFFERENCES IN GLOBAL SOCIETY

  • Dragan Stefanovski

Abstract

The Urban space is a location where the most significant social


evolution is taking place under the influence of the processes of


globalization. The city's analysis in the era of globalization integrates a


set of issues related to urban space in the modern global city and the


city in conditions of globalization. Global tendencies are re-actualizing


the issue of the urban lifestyle of both the individual and the group. The


focus of the paper is directed towards detecting globalization precisely


in the sphere of the urban, following the changes and the functionality


of the space. The urban space is a scene of stratification processes, but


also a scene of interweaving different cultures, a result of


multiculturalism and multi-confessionalism. On the other hand, layered


affiliation leaves an extra mark and recognition. Urban living is a


multidimensional phenomenon that can be perceived in many aspects.


It is integrating manifestations and urban spectacles, which build a


dynamically evolutionary component of space. In a word, the space is


the only place in which all the positive but also the negative experiences


are being felt by the individual and also by the group. Urban space is a


real site for human creativity, acting and using leisure time.
