             abstract = "The study of star clusters plays an important role in our 
                         understanding of the Universe since these systems are natural 
                         laboratories for testing theories of stellar dynamics and 
                         evolution. Particularly, globular clusters (GCs) are one of the 
                         most important objects for studying the formation and the physical 
                         nature of exotic systems which in turn provide basic information 
                         and tools that can help us to understand the formation and 
                         evolution processes of star clusters themselves, galaxies and, in 
                         general, the young Universe. Among the most interesting objects in 
                         GCs are the cataclysmic variables (CVs), which are interacting 
                         binaries harboring a white dwarf accreting from a low-mass 
                         companion. Since GC densities are sufficiently high that dynamical 
                         encounters involving binaries should be common, CV progenitors are 
                         expected to be affected by dynamics in some way in the early 
                         stages. In this article we review the formation channels and the 
                         influence of dynamics on the CV population in GCs. In particular, 
                         we review recent progress in numerical simulations. Furthermore, 
                         we discuss observational properties of CVs in GCs and the 
                         techniques used to identify and study them. We focus the 
                         discussion on the multi-wavelength observations carried out with 
                         HST and Chandra on the best-studied GCs NGC 6397, NGC 6752, 47 
                         Tucanae and Omega Centauri; on the recent spectroscopic findings 
                         with MUSE, and on updates regarding the correlation between the 
                         number of faint X-ray sources and the cluster stellar encounter 
                         rate. Finally, we discuss some observational prospects that might 
                         potentially help future investigations.",
