Introduction to a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people.

Part 7 of a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people. Many people in the Third World feel they are being penalized when they face drastic import controls for turning their raw materials into manufactured goods. Now they're also running up against the Seattle Syndrome -- an alliance of liberals and protectionists who want more restrictions on trade to fight poor wages and exploitative working conditions. But is this a justifiable way of fighting globalization -- or a kind of colonialism in disguise? The film also examines the garment industry of the Philippines as an example

Part 10 of a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people. The 1995 Copenhagen Social Summit promised action on poverty, employment and social integration -- pledging governments to deliver greater social justice to the world's six billion inhabitants. But in the five years since Copenhagen, the gap between the rich and the poor actually widened, while development assistance from the industrialized donor countries went into sharp decline. In June 2000 heads of state held a special session of the UN General Assembly to review progress on the Social Summit

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
This report, available in book and CD-ROM versions, examines the employment challenges and opportunties emerging from the rapid growth of information and communications technologies around the world. Recognized as one of the major drivers of economic growth and wealth creation, ICTs are raising productivity, reducing costs and increasing the speed of communications to help shape the new global economy. The effects of ICTs on the emergence of new enterprise and the demand for new skills and knowledge are profound, and this study illustrates how they have changed labour market conditions and industrial relations as well
