Loving, Hating and Survival
Handbook for All Who Work with Troubled Children and Young People
First published in 1997, Living in the Global Society reflects on the fundamental concept of global economy as the driving force for development, and examines how ethical values can direct this towards the welfare of humankind in a future where peace will reign.
The contributions stem from an international conference held in Rome on ‘Economic Growth, for What Kind of Future?’. The book examines four main themes: development and underdevelopment; globalization in the fields of economics, finance, trade, migration and culture; the shape of the world to come through management of resources and goods; and finally the challenge of globalization moving from fragmentation towards social growth based on cooperation and integration. It is suggested that only a civil society that is also developed at an international level can provide the basis for a true global democracy and true peace. This book asks, how far are we along the path towards its creation?
