In this book, a group of academics and practitioners contribute to the examination of a key dimension of globalisation: its fairness. They present a broad-ranging study of the intersections between fairness, globalisation, and public institutions. The four sections in this book look at: meanings of key concepts "fairness", "globalisation" and "public institutions"; the different preferred views on the relation of the three key concepts; looking at the issues from historic, global and futures-oriented perspectives; how public institutions in several East and Southeast Asian countries respond (or fail to respond) to globalisation with fairness. The work concludes with an analysis of what is needed in training and research and a summary of the authors' main lessons learned in this process. Although this study focuses on East and Southeast Asia, the relevance of the issues discussed extends well beyond these regions.
