Title Linking Globalization to Poverty Volume/Issue No. 2 Publication Date 2007-02-27 Place of Publication Helsinki Publisher United Nations University Press Pages 7 Language eng Abstract While the economic opportunities offered by globalization can be large, a question is often raised as to whether the actual distribution of gains is fair, in particular, whether the poor benefit less than proportionately from globalization and could under some circumstances be hurt by it. This Policy Brief summarizes and examines the various channels and transmission mechanisms, such as greater openness to trade and foreign investment, economic growth, effects on income distribution, technology transfer and labour migration, through which the process of globalization affects different dimensions of poverty in the developing world.
