Aruba, November 21 2011 - Globalization is widely seen as a powerful engine that has the potential to promote growth and development but concerns have been raised about the effects of globalization on jobs and wages. This book, co-published by the International Labour Office and the World Trade Organization, discusses ways of making globalization socially sustainable.
Jointly published by the International Labour Office and the Secretariat of the World Trade Organization, with funding by the International Chamber of Commerce, this publication consists of contributions by leading academic experts who analyse the various channels through which globalization affects jobs and wages. Together, the nine chapters in this volume summarize state-of-the art knowledge on themes related to the social dimension of globalization.

The volume, therefore, represents a step in the direction of a better understanding of the mechanisms through which globalization affects workers and of the measures that governments can take to give globalization a strong social dimension. It will be of value to all those who are interested in the debate on the social sustainability of globalization, including workers and employers, policy-makers, academics, and other trade and labour specialists.
