Presents new evidence about the role of ethics in government action to alleviate hunger
Shows how ethical and economic aspects can be integrated for better policies and reduced hunger
Discusses how ethical perspectives may guide globalization for the benefit of poor people
Provides a unique perspective on how to achieve the Millennium Development Goals
The first book in which scholars and practitioners analyze the interaction between ethics and economics in a cohesive, interdisciplinary way
"Ethics, Hunger and Globalization” adds an ethics dimension to the debate and research about poverty, hunger, and globalization. Outstanding scholars and practitioners from several disciplines discuss what action is needed for ethics to play a bigger role in action by governments, civil society, and the private sector to reduce poverty and hunger within the context of globalization. The book concludes that much of the rhetoric by policy makers is not followed up with appropriate action, and discusses the role of ethics in attempts to match action with rhetoric. The book also concludes that a better understanding of the values underlying both public and private sector action towards the alleviation of poverty and hunger would lead to more enlightened policies and greater success in attempts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. The interaction between ethical, economic, and policy aspects is discussed and scholars and experienced practitioners from several disciplines suggest how such integration may be promoted.
