Abstract

Mobile élites, international business travelers, frequent flyers, cosmopolitans are all labels to indicate the most privileged of those who traverse the space of globally connected flows and who represent, in theory, a perfect example of the breaking of national boundaries and of respatialisation dynamics. But are they all of the same social group? Do they share values, interests and reasons to travel? are they a homogeneous élite of world citizens? In order to answer, I'll present some findings of a research I've carried out on a sample of more than forty top and middle managers in three multinationals based in Paris and in Milan
