Is a Fairer Globalization Possible?
Wednesday, October 26, 2005 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM
Globalization has brought about more opportunities for people worldwide but also more economic, social and political disparities, including rising inequality within and between nations. This poverty and despair is unsustainable and morally unacceptable. But what should be done? And through which processes should decisions be taken? This is one of the most critical questions the world faces today.
Presented by the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs and the New York Society for Ethical Culture, the public forum, “Is a Fairer Globalization Possible?” explored alternative policies and governance structures for bringing about more equal globalization for all. A distinguished panel of speakers discussed how globalization affects democratic deliberation and political choice at the international, national, and local levels.
