The level of public and political debate on the subject of globalisation has
grown considerably in recent years. However, as the term enters popular vocabulary,
terms such as pro- or anti-globalisation obscure the issues at hand. This paper seeks
to engage in a meaningful way with the subject, with particular emphasis on policy
advocacy and issues of economic justice. Firstly, the dimensions and interpretations
of globalisation are examined. Having provided a framework for analysis, Ireland’s
stance on globalisation is investigated from an international development
perspective. Finally, the mechanisms for improving global governance are
addressed. Challenges and opportunities are identified in an effort to support a type
of globalisation which works to reduce exclusion and inequality.
