Event – Alternative Globalisations forum: Global Governance/Cosmopolitanism, 20 May

Posted in Events, Visions by Ferne Edwards on May 21st, 2008

Speaker: Sue Kenny (Deakin University)
Date & Time: Tuesday May 20: 7pm.
Location: Horse Bazaar (http://www.horsebazaar.com.au/), 397 Little Lonsdale Street

In many senses globalisation has brought us closer together. However it has also enhanced the ability of the developed world to exploit everyone else. Instead of the unity we were promised we have a greater disparity in living standards and wealth. So what sort of globalisation could actually bring us together? Can global networks of NGOs help bring us together in a way our governments have failed to? Can it be the key to greater understanding between cultures and nations, were our similarities bind us together creating a cohesive world order? Can we move beyond nationalism to a single moral community?
