Abstract The prevalence & increase, specially in recent years, of diverse problems (social, economic environmental) particularly in Latin America have led various sectors to question globalization as a convenient model for the development of these countries. In this article we present & analyse, in general terms, some notions, characteristics & implications of globalization, from two antagonistic versions: The first of them refers to the notion of globalization from the point of view of its creators & adepts, while the second one is based on the version ellaborated by its oponents. In this regard, we present some similarities between the first version with the dominant paradigm in science & between the second one with emergent paradigms. Thus, in the first version globalization is understood as the unique, universal, undeniable & irreversible reality, whereas in the second one various constructions regarding globalization, which signify this phenomenon as culturally & historically constructed & hence dynamic, are formulated. This second version serves us as base for analysing the impact of globalization on economically deprived communities in our continent & simultaneously for illustrating the potentialities of these communities, empowered through the contributions of community social psychology, for resisting unfavourable effects of globalization upon them.
