Summary/Abstract: The author discusses globalisation form multiple perspectives. He emphasises that globalisation certainly reduces poverty in absolute sense while increases poverty in a relative sense. There are important risks inherent in the process of globalisation, which include hyper-competition, treat to the social rights of citizens, and rendering a lot of people economically irrelevant. To cure the deficiencies of globalisation Professor Zamagni favours cosmopolitical democracy and transnationalcivil society, which might be able to safeguard cultural diversity, social justice and peace.
