The current transformation of political community in Ireland, as elsewhere, can be related to developments that can be broadly summed under the heading of globalization, as the title of this issue suggests. The broad designation 'Global Ireland' points to a conception of political commmunity different from 'national Ireland', but it is far from clear what this entails and what ther consewuences of globalization exactly are. It can be assumed that globality brings with it far-reaching implications, presenting both dangers as well as opportunities for democracy, citizenship and justice. Central to this is the changed status of the nation: is the nation still relevant or is it obsolescent with the rise of new kinds of political community beyond the nation?
