Civil Society and the Battle for Ethical Globalization

Book - 2003

Summary: Globalization is one of the most charged political battlegrounds of our age. Its advocates say it is an engine for universal prosperity, while its critics see it as a race to the bottom for poor people and poor countries. Worlds Apart bridges this divide by interpreting both sets of arguments and getting behind the polemics. It is not, however, a search 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 is a call for ethical globalization. In this new regime, civil society would be a critical player - and globalization is helping prepare it for this challenge. Worlds Apart shows how the same opportunities and threats that have caused such rapid change in the economic and corporate worlds are also transforming the citizen's sector.
