Thoughts on Globalisation and Equality in Contemporary World
AbstractIn recent years, it has become increasingly common to raise concerns linking the two main themes of this paper, globalisation and equality. Globalisation is quite often blamed for exacerbating social and economic inequalities both within and between countries. As well as exacerbating pre-existing inequalities, it is also claimed that it is creating new forms of inequality, such as inequalities in power to shape the rules which regulate the emerging global order. Whether or not it is exacerbating pre-existing inequalities, or creating new forms of inequality, this highly debated matter of globalisation certainly makes some inequalities more morally or politically significant than they would otherwise have been.
