THE MOST YOU GOOD YOU CAN DO by Peter Singer

There’s a growing movement of people who are passionate about ethical giving and effective poverty relief. Inspired in part by Peter Singer’s ethical arguments, these individuals strive to live their lives in order to maximize their ability to give—and ensure that their donations go to charities with proven records of helping the global poor. Peter Singer’s most recent book The Most Good You Can Do (Yale,
2015) introduces a wide-ranging cast of individuals who have made conscious decisions to prioritize effective giving as they negotiate their career choices, family lives, and relationships with those they love. 

None of these people see themselves as moral saints; nor do they feel that they must make sacrifices in order to live by their ethical goals.The Most Good You Can Do shows that each of us can find ways of bettering the lives of the global poor—and that doing so often holds substantial personal and psychological rewards for those who chose to give.

Each of us has the opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of others, without diminishing the quality of our own life. The Life You Can Save and The Most Good You Can Do show why we should see our global giving as an important ethical choice, and demonstrate how we can make our charitable aid more effective. Peter Singer’s message is ultimately a call to action—action that you can take today. 

 

GAYO ON CHALLENGES TO GLOBALIZATION & ECONOMIC INTEGRATION IN LATIN AMERICA

Prof. Dr. Daniel Gayo contributed to the recent publication, Globalization and Economic Integration in Latin America: Challenges. The book contributes to the review of existing integration schemes and constraints and identifies new areas of cooperation within Latin America. The goal is to reinvigorate regional integration by examining recent socio-economic success in the region to continue bridging gaps that still exist. This book includes a collection of contributions of the Second International Conference on Poverty, Migration, and Development held in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico in 2010. 

Dr. Gayo is an Associate Professor of Applied Economics at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) of Madrid, Director of the Master's Program in International Development  and Cooperation for Latin America (URJC), and the Co-Director of the Specialist in International Cooperation Management (URJC-CIDEAL).  His main research interests focus on international development cooperation, regional economic integration and development, and public policies for development in Latin America and Europe.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) SERVICES FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED ENTERPRISES

The Council on International Law and Politics now offers comprehensive advice and support on all issues related to CSR for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Central- and South America, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Central and South-East Asia, as well as SMEs in the West doing business with partners in those CILP target countries and regions. CILP wants to promote awareness of CSR and encourage smaller enterprises, which lack the expertise and resources to develop their own CSR reports or implement their own CSR compliance audits, to join the global movement for socially and environmentally responsible corporate citizenship. Whether SMEs are active in manufacturing or service industries, whether a report or audit is done as pro-active reputation management or as a requirement of global supply chain management, CSR awareness and compliance have become essential elements of a sustainable business strategy. CILP uses the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Global Compact, and the ISO 26000 Standard on Social Responsibility as foundations of its work. The service is also available for governmental agencies in developing countries and not-for-profit corporations. As with all CILP services, CSR support is provided at or below cost.

CONFERENCE: CHINA'S FIRST TEN YEARS IN THE WTO: ISSUES, CHALLENGES, AND PROSPECTS

On 5 October 2012, the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law (Indianapolis) brought together leading experts on international trade law to review the first ten years of Chinese membership in the WTO. The Conference addressed a range questions: Has the Chinese system of market based economy with centralized single party political control proven compatible with the requirements of an open trading system in a globalizing world? Has China been able to translate political commitments on paper into effective legal and administrative implementation by the myriad of bodies and authorities it takes to apply WTO law, from customs authorities via food and drug regulators to consumer protection agencies? And if there have been problems - either with the Chinese implementation of obligations or with Chinese trading rights and privileges in the other member states - have they been resolved with the use of the institutional dispute settlement procedures provided by the WTO? Conference proceedings and final papers will be published in the European Journal of Law Reform and by the Council on International Law and Politics in book format.
