The "war on terrorism"

Sphere: Related Content

The "war on terrorism" launched by U.S. President George W. Bush after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 made it clear that no matter where we live -- Iraq, Indonesia or Iceland -- we belong to a globalised world. The frozen Far North is hit hardest by global warming fed by factories far to the south, headlines in newspapers all over the world speak of the World Bank's debacle, and telephone orders placed by U.S. consumers for Asian-made computers are answered by telecentre workers in India trained to "sound American." An increasingly vocal civil society accuses the UN and other global institutions like the WTO of serving the interests of rich and powerful nations at the expense of the poorest. Multinational corporations forge ahead, relentlessly serving profit. IPS, with its history of amplifying the voices of the world's unheard and with its network of writers and editors in 150 countries, will help you make sense of these global forces.
