Abstract:
Can pressure of the rich and industrialized countries on poor countries improve their production conditions through consumer's awareness? Some authors hold hope that globalization will improve the condition of environment, and the lives of those in the developing world. Numerous studies of social development have chronicled and predicted the problems associated with globalization throughout the third world. Both social and environmental standards created by governments and Non Governmental Organizations in developed countries have the intention to assess and approve the level of responsibility of companies producing in the third world.
