  • Globalism
  • is a set of values and ethical beliefs that share the premise that we share one fragile planet whose survival requires mutual respect and careful treatment of all its people and its environment. Three central activities that uphold globalism are (1) active communications to foster understanding, (2) the sharing of resources on the basis of equity and sustainability, and (3) mutual aid in times of need.[1]

    [1]    Based on a definition provided in Ritchie, Mark Ritchie. Globalization v. Globalism: Giving Internationalism a Bad Name, background paper presented at CESCR Day of General Discussion: Globalization and its impact on the enjoyment of economic and social rights, Geneva, 11 May 1998.
