Constructive Dialogue on Globalisation Issues
2001: Butchers' Hall, London
World trade and citizenship with a global dimension
The workshops were varied and wide-ranging, drawing on the experiences of leaders working within world trade and development.
The case studies included:
- the trading relationship between producer and buyer for quality assurance in the supply chain for tropical oils and fats;
- smallholders with dependence on a single crop with poor yields and the pressures of land management;
- strategies for enhancing global trade in a developing country or region;
- the management of community relationships;
- a community project to improve water supply and sanitation in a rural village;
- sources of information on globalisation issues;
- company perspectives on citizenship.
The workshops included a task to focus on the decision-making required in these specific contexts.
