Green Alternatives to Globalisation
Written by leader of the Green Party, Caroline Lucas, this manifesto argues that globalisation increases poverty, undermines democracy, and destroys the environment, the authors demonstrate the urgent need for a new approach - economic localisation - that is based on the Green principles of equity, ecology and democracy. Applying their thesis to current international crises, including climate change, trade and development, agriculture, and international security, we see how economic localisation could be adopted and applied to positive ends.
Michael Woodin sadly passed away in 2004 and is much missed by his friends and colleagues in the Green Party. He was Principal Speaker of the Green Party of England and Wales and was elected as Oxford's first Green City Councillor in 1994. He also lectured in Psychology at Balliol College, University of Oxford.
Caroline Lucas is the Co-Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales. She is the first and only Green Member of Parliament (MP).
