Does co-operation make a fairer globalisation possible?

Globalisation is a heavily contested concept. However, while the concept may be increasingly seen as a dirty word – whether critiqued by left wing protesters of inequality or rejected by populist leaders promoting national sovereignty – the integration of people and organisations through trade, travel and technology will not be dismantled any time soon.

Globalisation is criticized for facilitating unfair trade, increasing inequality, poor working practices, health and environmental problems and social unrest. In this webinar we ask in what ways co-operation might modify or reduce some of the more negative aspects of globalisation, drawing on its principles and values to ensure equity and fairness.

Hazel Johnson (Open University) and Anne Tallontire (University of Leeds) will draw on their extensive research experience in Africa to discuss the chances for co-operation working effectively in a globalised world.
