Globalisation can be defined as the way that world trade, culture and technologies have become rapidly integrated over the last twenty years or so. The world economy seems to depend to some extent on a new breed of workers, namely ‘knowledge workers’, in order to meet demands for labour that are brought about by globalization, as argued my many scholars. How knowledge is defined and who belongs in the category of ‘knowledge workers’ have been the object of various debates over the years. The concept of ‘global knowledge workers’ denotes unlimited (global) mobility and availability for ‘the right knowledge-based work assignment, when and where needed’. In this e-book the Guest Editors have sought to problematise and discuss whether the category of ‘global knowledge workers’ as such exists, who the ‘global knowledge workers’ are, how they can be perceived and classified, and how their attributes as well as skills basis are framed from diversity, equality and relational perspectives.
