image of Making Globalization Socially Sustainable

Globalization is widely seen as a powerful engine that has the potential to promote growth and development but concerns have been raised about the effects of globalization on jobs and wages. This book, co-published by the International Labour Office and the World Trade Organization, discusses ways of making globalization socially sustainable.



Education policies to make globalization more inclusive

The process of globalization has furthered economic growth and development in many cases, but concerns have been expressed as to its sustainability from a social point of view. There are indications that in developed countries, globalization has increased inequality of labour-market outcomes. While some developing countries have managed to take advantage of the opportunities created by the globalization process, others have not. This chapter discusses the role of education and skill policies in helping individuals and societies profit from globalization, thereby increasing the social sustainability of the globalization process.
