What is Global Dimensions?
Developing the political
response to globalization.
The world's economies and societies are becoming more and more integrated,
but the rules and institutions for managing them are being left behind.
Centred at the London School of Economics' Centre for the Study of Global
Governance, Global Dimensions is a research programme for developing policy
responses to issues raised by globalization. The programme comprises a
research team led by Professor Lord Desai, and a series of seminars held
around the world to bring together global strategists from business, academe,
the media, civil society, governments and international organizations.
The programme also boasts two very distinguished visiting fellows, Chief
Ameka Anyaoku, former Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, and Dr Ernesto
Zedillo, former President of Mexico.
The World Wide Web is not only one of the engines of
globalization, but also provides a global arena in which to understand
and discuss it.
As well as being an outlet for the research programme, this website acts
as a complement to the conference debates, opening them to the world,
and allowing the discussion to continue online long after the meetings
have dispersed. In addition, the Globalization Library provides a gateway
to the most lucid and up to date political thinking on globalization all
over the world.
Here, the most influential thinking about globalization
is all at your fingertips.
Global Dimensions is supported by a grant from BP.
