Socialinės tvarkos raidos globalizacijos sąlygomis problemos.
This article analyzes three important problems concerning the development of social order under the circumstances of globalization. These problems are: 1) the relationship between the universal and local social order; 2) the relationship between social security and individual freedom; 3) the relationship between justice and social order. The social tensions that all of these relationships hold may potentially cause new social conflicts. The analysis of the relationship between the universal and local social order has shown that the evaluative and normative nature of social order itself limits our social openness to the world and to the expansion of globalization. The intensive expansion of globalization is connected with the establishment of the universal social order; therefore, its implementation will inevitably cause local conflicts that will curb the expansion of globalization. The growth of a number of negative phenomena that come with globalization to Western societies is transforming the relationship between social security and individual freedom, which is understood as human rights. The search for ways to prevent the threats to social security highlights the important interrelationship between human rights and responsibilities. In order not to curtail human rights under the circumstances of declining social security, it is essential to define and validate human responsibilities. Globalization poses a very serious threat because it may potentially cause a conflict in justice and social order, two areas that have been at the basis of all the great revolutions up to now. To avoid this situation, we must legitimate the social objectives of contemporary law, which are to preserve and protect human rights and responsibilities and to create the legal conditions for the improvement in the quality of social life.
