Item description for Fair Globalization: Creating Opportunities For All by World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization...
This is a groundbreaking report urging that building a fair and inclusive globalization become a worldwide priority. Calling for an "urgent rethink" of current policies and institutions of global governance, the report attempts to break the current impasse by focusing on the concerns and aspirations of people and on the ways to better harness the potential of globalization itself.
This report was compiled by the World Commission on the Social Dimensions of Globalization, co-chaired by the Presidents of Finland and Tanzania, and whose members include a Nobel Economics Laureate, parliamentarians, social and economic experts and representatives of business and multinational corporations, organized labour, academia and civil society. This broadly representative group has put forth, through this report, the first systematic attempt to deal with social dimensions of globalization.
Among its prescriptions for achieving a fair and inclusive globalization, the report proposes a series of coordinated measures across a broad front to improve governance and accountability at both national and international levels. These include fairer rules for international trade, investment, finance and migration, which take account of all interests, rights and responsibilities; measures to promote core labour standards and a minimum level of social protection in the global economy; and new efforts to mobilize international resources to raise capabilities and meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

paves the way Mar 19, 2008
The strength of this report is its very integrative nature. While making an urgent call for a change from the current course of globalization, it is always differentiated and well-balanced in tone, thereby reflecting the fact that it was prepared by extensive regional dialogues in different parts of the world including representatives from different backgrounds. The report provides well thought-out directives for an improvement of governance at all levels in order to improve the situation of the people and peoples of the world, to overcome the current polarization of wealth distribution and to "provide opportunities for all". Along with Deepak Nayyar's books and the publications of the Global Marshall Plan initiative, the World Commission's report is one of my favourites in contemporary literature on globalization and sustainable development.
