IB Disparities in Wealth and Development

Globalization. Debate abounds over whether globalization is good or bad for the individual, the family, the nation, and the world.


Exchanges and interconnections are as old as human history itself, as people moved around the globe in search of opportunity and spreading new ideas. Pessimists view increased interdependence as a terribly destructive trend for communities and culture, while optimists envision a diverse and better life for all. The word “globalization” itself describes an endless range of interactions, both deliberate and accidental.

Following is the text of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s address at an event on “Responsible Sovereignty: International Cooperation for a Changed World”, in Berlin, today, 15 July: It is an honour to be with you.


I commend the organizers -- Managing Global Insecurity and the Bertelsmann Foundation -- for convening this forum on responsible sovereignty, one of the defining challenges of the twenty-first century. How fitting it is that we address these matters in Berlin, where the twentieth century learned such hard lessons about the dangers of unbridled and irresponsible sovereignty. Today, Germany stands as a model of the responsible sovereign, at home and abroad. Indeed, the leading role that a united Germany now plays in the United Nations speaks to the curative properties of the principles of human rights, tolerance and the rule of law, for which the world body proudly stands.
