Summary/Abstract: To write on the effects of globalisation (under all its forms), on the evolution of the world population seems to be a purely statistical, quantitative approach that lacks the deep analysis of the shades that spring up when adapting to a great variety of local conditions. The adoption of the already classical pattern of demographic transition as the main explanatory auxiliary used to follow these shades, although insufficient, manages to render the cultural dimension of certain phenomena which are apparently dominated by economic and social factors. Explaining the diffusion of an essentially cultural model such as the above mentioned one certifies the importance of the access to the circulation of ideas and information as a globalisation vector. Thus we can also add the demographic dimension to the multiple facets under which this process manifests its presence in a world in which transformation is no longer imposed by revolutions, changing itself in the sense of our evolution to citizens of Humanity.
