Globalization Challenges for the Millennium: Ethical Imperatives and Ethical Dilemmas
February 18, 2004
In this speech delivered at Claremont Graduate University, Katherine Marshall discusses the moral dilemmas that globalization brings and the ethical imperatives individuals should take upon themselves in this new millennium. She addresses questions which are central to development practitioners, and which have lingered in the field for some time, including how poverty and globalization are related and why poverty and severe inequality persist in a time of such plenty. Marshall also considers how inequality should be approached and meshed with desires for creativity and diversity, as well as what responsibilities individuals and communities have in relation to these topics.
