Around the world in 80 ways – Who’s afraid of globalisation?
Given the broadly positive attitudes of the social partners, it is somewhat surprising that support for globalisation among European citizens is actually falling. The proportion of European citizens seeing globalisation as a threat to employment went up from 39% in 2003 (EU15) to 47% in 2006 (EU25). This fact sheet forms part of the Eurofound resource pack on Around the world in 80 ways – today’s global market place. The pack explores the impact of globalisation, providing insights into developments, perceptions and measures dealing with its consequences.
