Globalisation and Equality (Paperback): Keith Horton, Haig Patapan Globalisation and Equality (Paperback)
Keith Horton, Haig Patapan

Is globalisation creating a more unequal world? Is it creating new forms of inequality? Does it make certain pre-existing forms of inequality more morally or politically significant than they would otherwise have been? Globalisation and Equality examines these and related questions, exploring the way increasing globalisation is challenging our conceptions of equality. The contributors explore these themes from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. Some adopt a more abstract approach, exploring foundational questions concerning the meaning of equality, its social and political dimensions, and more specifically its moral implications in a global context. Others engage the general themes of globalisation and equality by focusing on specific topics, such as welfare, citizenship, gender, culture, and the environment. Original in the questions it poses, and interdisciplinary in its approach, this collection of essays will appeal to all those with an interest in globalisation and equality.

In recent decades there has been a great expansion in the number, size and influence of International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) involved in international relief and development. These changes have led to increased scrutiny of such organisations, and this scrutiny, together with increasing reflection by INGOs themselves and their staff on their own practice, has helped to highlight a number of pressing ethical questions such organisations face, such as: should INGOs attempt to provide emergency assistance even when doing so risks helping to fuel further conflict? How should INGOs manage any differences between their values and those of the people they seek to benefit? How open and honest should INGOs be about their own uncertainties and failures?

This book consists of sustained reflections on such questions. It derives from a workshop held at Melbourne University in July 2007 that brought together a group of people - for the most part, reflective practitioners and moral and political philosophers - to discuss such questions. It explores honestly some of the current challenges and dilemmas that INGOs face, and also suggests some new ideas for meeting these challenges. Our hope is that the kind of explicit reflection on the ethical issues INGOs face exemplified in this publication will help to promote a wider debate about these issues, a debate that in turn will help INGO managers and others to make better, wiser, more ethically informed decisions.

Born Fighting an Uphill Battle...
If you're a young African-American male today, you're more likely to grow up in a single-parent home, drop out of school, go to prison, or die from a gunshot wound than any other ethnic group in the United States. And if you're a good kid? You're likely to be perceived as stupid by your teachers, and people still are going to cross the street when they see you coming.
It's almost enough to make you give up. After all, what's the point?
Author Keith Horton has been there. And he's here to tell you there IS a point. So the odds are stacked against you. So what? Born Fighting an Uphill Battle is a realistic, no-holds-barred look at dealing with the challenges every young African-American male faces today--and at how to overcome those challenges. Keith offers hope and encouragement to the young men society has written off--and shows how they can become successful, happy, fulfilled African-American adults.
