The article presents the role of the globalization in the configuration of new modalities of conflict in which the borders among what is known as war, organized crime and violations to the human rights are not clear. Concepts like global society, global profile and intense globalization are explained and they are used to understand the new dynamics of the globalization. It is estimated that wars, without stop being eminently local, can expand their consequences under the globalization. It is proposed, as an explanatory principle, the concept of resonance, native circumstance of the rising global society and analytic key and to understand the waves and the networks that nurture, at the same time that serve as setting, to the new conflicts.
