Abstract

The 21st century has provided social sciences with various opportuni- ties for a re -examination of Southern European territorial and social dynamics. Since 2008, multiple aspects of the economic crisis, the migrant “crisis” and the SARS -CoV -2 pandemic – as well as the current geopolitical and energy crisis related to the Russian-Ukrainian war 1 – have affected in particular these territories and societies more than other macro-regional areas. Likewise, policies adopted to tackle the crises at a European level have had peculiar impacts on Southern European coun- tries and have often fallen short of expectations. Hence the importance, given their special characteristics and needs, of re -examining the (some- times brutal) effects of globalisation on the distinct socio -economic, cultural and territorial fabric of these areas.
