Global Brazil and U.S.-Brazil relations by Council on Foreign Relations( file )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 901 libraries worldwide
Brazil has emerged as both a driver of growth in South America and an active force in world politics in the decade since the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) convened its first Independent Task Force on the country. During this period, Brazil has lifted nearly thirty million of its citizens out of poverty, significantly expanded its middle class, become increasingly active within multilateral institutions and international forums, and weathered the recent worldwide recession -- all in a peaceful, market-oriented, and democratic context. To be sure, Brazil is still contending with important internal concerns -- its remaining poor, the growing challenges of climate change, and its ongoing transformation from a commodity-based to an industrial economy, to name just a few. Nevertheless, the message of this report could hardly be clearer: Brazil matters not just regionally but globally. Its decisions and actions will affect the world's economy, environment, and energy future as well as prospects for diplomacy and stability. Brazil is on the short list of countries that will most shape the twenty-first century. U.S. and Brazilian foreign policy must adjust accordingly

Spanning all ten years of Wolfhenson presidency (1995-2005), the book presents his most stimulating and thought-provoking writings on critical global issues, including poverty, debt relief, corruption, HIV/AIDS, climate change, human rights, and globalization. Written during some of the most tumultuous times in recent history, Wolfhenson writings address and examine key global events and issues, from the Asian financial crisis, the rise of the antiglobalization movement and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to strife in Sudan, the global spread of AIDS and the global war on terror. With over 100 of Wolfensohn's writings, this book will be an invaluable resource for readers interested in international relations, international development, the World Bank, and James Wolfensohn himself

4 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
Introduction to a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people. Part 1 examines whether the globalized economy is now running out of control, or whether ordinary people can still hope to share in its wealth. Although most people today are better fed, clothed and educated than ever before, there are also millions more now living in absolute poverty
The Seattle syndrome ( visu )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
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

Religion and development : ways of transforming the world ( Book )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
Until recently, policy-makers and academics generally saw religion as something that would disappear as countries made economic progress. But we now know that this rarely happens in fact. People in most countries continue to look at the world through the prism of religion even when they develop modern lifestyles. Religion and Development looks at the ways in which a religious worldview influences processes of development. Its great originality is that it does not concentrate primarily on religious institutions and organisations but on religious ideas themselves. In the final resort, it is people's ideas that motivate them. Their worldview stimulates them to act in specific ways. Religion is a dimension of life that often lies behind qualities such as social trust and cohesion that are vital to development. This is of growing importance in a world where technocratic visions of development have lost their way. For communities where religious belief is accepted as a fact of everyday life, religion constitutes a major resource. It can be employed by people who want to destroy society as well as those who want to build it. The contributors to this book explore how religious resources can be harnessed for development. Many of the world's people believe that the material advancement of both individuals and communities is inseparable from their spiritual improvement. -- Book Description

The road from Rio ( visu )

This segment questions the relevance and success of the World Summit on Sustainable Development which opened in August 2002 in Johannesburg. As world leaders prepared for the meeting, hard questions were raised -- when governments had failed to deliver on so many of the promises they made in Rio -- why should the world believe they'd be any more responsive at the second summit?

"China is fast becoming one of the world's industrial powerhouses. But hundreds of millions of Chinese still live in poverty, far from the coastal regions generating the new wealth. As elsewhere in the world, the gap between the rich and the poor is growing. The Chinese government is trying to address the problem -- through targeted poverty reduction programs. The Leap Forward reports on China's efforts to spread the new social benefits beyond the city limits-- and asks how well they're succeeding"--Bullfrog Films website
