    This cluster focuses on the creation of new political and cultural resistances and configurations as articulated in various responses to the global "modern" society. The difficulties of nation-states, civil and transnational societies as a result of the malfunctioning of the world economy lead to new social categories based on wage and non-wage labor, gender and ethno-religious identities.
