Globalization has created many opportunities to increase living standards. Yet, it has also led to increased income inequality and higher vulnerability in many countries and has had a profound effect on the structure of labour markets. This publication addresses some of the manifestations of globalization focusing on the role of employment and work in poverty eradication. The report emanates from the discussions of 24 experts in the field of economic and social development, and environmental protection.
