 A Future Perfect : The Challenge and Hidden Promise of Globalization

cover When Good Companies Do Bad Things : Responsibility and Risk in an Age of Globalization by Peter Schwartz, Blair Gibb.

The notion of corporations taking on social issues for the greater good is gaining momentum, not only because of political correctness but because it can actually strengthen a company's long-term strategy. Internationally-recognized futurist and author Peter Schwartz, and Global Business Network principal Blair Gibb examine well-known cases of companies like Shell, Nike, Texaco, and Nestle in a new light, effectively illustrating the risks of corporate assumptions that lead many companies to make poor choices. Drawing on their own experiences, as well as those of CEOs and executives they interview, the authors break down the policies and practices that get in the way of solving the economic, moral, and practical problems business confronts around this issue today. They present new approaches that demonstrate how it is possible to translate social value into business value...

Feminism and Globalization: The Impact of the Global Economy on Women and Feminist Theory

Thematic issue of Global Legal Studies Journal

 

The Commission of Global Governance

A group of 28 leaders who have suggested ways to make the world a better place for all its people.

The Commission's report, Our Global Neighborhood, proposes improved arrangements for managing our common interests. It suggests measures to enhance the security of people and management of the world economy and to strengthen the rule of law. It wants global institutions better equipped to meet the needs of the post-Cold War world.

 

Globalism and Global Governance

Practically all aspects of food, agriculture, and environmental protection are affected by global forces. For this reason, IATP devotes significant attention to the global arena, including policymaking institutions, cross-border organizing on key issues and the building of collaborations with partners around the planet. We place an emphasis on understanding and incorporating a historical perspective in all of our work. As part of our work on the previous GATT/WTO negotiations, IATP brought together the surviving founders of the post-war global economic institutions and systems, like the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the United Nations to explore the political and economic context in which these global rules originated and in which they have evolved...

 

International Forum on Globalization

Responds to the threats of economic globalization to democracy, communities, human welfare, and the natural environment. Believes that the world's corporate and political leadership is undertaking a restructuring of global politics and economics that may prove as historically significant as any event since the industrial revolution.

Feminist Theory and Gender Studies in International Relations

By Christine Sylvester.

 

The Power of Culture:  Globalization Brings the Need for Global Ethics

By Flora Lewis.  Like it or not, globalization is here - in some ways. It isn't a global village, nothing cozy and not that much communal about it. But things, people and money, especially money, do move around as never before, and more and more barriers are breached. The porousness of societies isn't even, but it won't be stopped...
