Global Respekt

I just read the book "Global Respekt" in Swedish. Is also translated in English, "Global Respect". The full title is "Global Respect: A basic course in globalisationa nd human rights". It is the printed version of the website palmecenter.org. The content is also available as an online study circle.

For those of you that haven't read No Logo this a more accessible way to get the same material which also contains lots of links to human rights and workers rights organisation world wide.

The book is divided into 10 lectures:
  • Poor and rich - part I
  • Poor and rich - part II
  • Poverty and world trade
  • In a global world
  • Power and democracy - part I
  • Power and democracy -part II
  • Workers movement as a force force for increased democracy
  • Human rights - part I
  • Human rights - part II
  • Union work in a global world
Each lesson contains sections of questions to be used in study circle.
Each lesson ends with a short test of the main issues, answer at the end of the book.

The book ends with a small dictionary and lots of tips literature and references.

In short, a good read and starting point for anyone interested in human rights, workers right and democracy in a global world.
