A 2007-2008 Mission Study

Globalization (cover)by elmira Nazombe

New Supplement Resources Added March 2007:

The goal of this study is to explore the places where globalization touches the lives of ordinary people.

The adult study book examines the impact of economic globalization, including free trade policies, on our lives. It looks at the processes known as outsourcing and offshoring, that is, the expansion of business and corporate operations into many countries throughout the world. It looks at how global media and communications technologies are drastically altering both ecomonic and human relationships.

By looking at these phenomena we hope to understand more fully the impact of globalization on human rights and the social, economic, and political development of various cultures and nations.
