Globalisation for the Common Good Initiative Journal (GCGIJ) is dedicated to promoting the inclusion of ethical, moral and spiritual values into the areas of economics, commerce, trade and international relations, in order to advance understanding and action. GCGIJ seeks to identify and propose collaborative policy solutions on the major global issues and challenges by civil society, private enterprise, the public sector, governments, and national and international institutions. We are committed to the idea that the marketplace is not just an economic sphere, ‘it is a region of the human spirit’. We view the problem and challenge of globalisation not only from an economic point of view, but also from a diversity of ethical, spiritual, theological and humanist currents and perspectives. Globalization for the common good is predicated on a global economy of sharing and community, grounded in an economic value system whose aim is generosity and the promotion of a just distribution of the world’s goods, services, natural resources, and wealth, while leaving room for other species to thrive as well.

We believe in a genuine intercultural, and inter-faith dialogue, as well as a multi and interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. A dialogue based upon co-operation and mutual respect, is essential in bringing the world together; enhancing intercultural understanding, and leading to the creation of a harmonious global environment. Such efforts will contribute to world of peace, justice and true prosperity for all.
