This book goes beyond the polemics to interpret the arguments of both proponents and critics of globalisation. Not searching for a middle ground, it unashamedly looks at the issues through a poverty lens and highlights the injustices of widening inequalities and stacked odds in world trade and finance. It argues for a different management of global change that ensures everyone shares in its opportunities - it is a call for 'ethical globalisation'.
Part one: gives an overview of globalisation, looks at the broad economic issues and widening disparity of wealth as well as global changes in the political realm.
Part two: describes how the citizen's sector as well as the economic and corporate sectors are becoming more global and how different organisations are facing these challenges
Part three: addresses the moral responsibilities of governments. NGOs and corporations in making global decisions and civil society's role in ensuring equitable development.
