ABSTRACT
The World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization established by the International Labor Organization in February 2002 has just released its final report entitled 'A Fair Globalization--Creating opportunities for all.' The report advocates a new approach to the globalization process with a strong social dimension based on universally shared values, respect for human rights and individual dignity, fair and democratic governance, opportunities and tangible benefits for all countries and people. It contains a wide-ranging set of recommendations concerning the changes to be introduced in the economic systems at both global and national levels to achieve a fair and inclusive globalization. The report also outlines a series of steps and measures to be taken for mobilizing action for change. In conclusion the report states that the recommendations are a call for a wider and more democratic participation of people and countries in the making of policies that affect them. And they also require those with the capacity and power to decide--governments, parliaments, business, labor, civil society and international organizations--to assume their common responsibility to promote a free, equitable and productive global community.
