Globalization activities are reshaping social life everywhere. Such global development efforts, however, have raised difficult questions of responsibility, morality, and equity.
A critical examination is needed of the relationship between globalization, inequality and poverty; the effect of a globalizing world on concepts of cultural diversity and universalism; and the impact of globalization on issues involving gender, ethnicity, the environment, social justice, and human rights.
The Global Ethics Education Initiative recognizes the moral dilemmas intrinsic to building better international social and economic structures and hence, encourages educational efforts and rigorous thinking on these issues of social justice.
