Vision and Mission of GCGI Journal

Globalization for the Common Good Initiative Journal (GCGI Journal)

Globalization for the Common Good Initiative Journal (GCGI Journal) is envisioned to enhance the well-being (both physical and spiritual) and prosperity of human kind by serving and promoting the common good through communication and cooperation. This will be based on the following principles:

Dialogue: Communication is the most appropriate vehicle for understanding "others," enhancing intercultural cooperation, creating goodwill, and establishing sound international relations.

Justice: Justice is the key factor in dealing with all human endeavors. It is the creation of a global atmosphere in which all people are treated in a humane and just manner.

Sustainability: In this fast changing world of today, our choices will determine not only how we live in the short run but also how succeeding generations will live in the distant future.

Ecology: Human society and human economics must also make room for other species to thrive. This also is a moral imperative.

Service: The most appropriate personal action through which we can achieve justice and sustainability throughout the world.

The mission of Globalization for the Common Good Initiative Journal is to:

  • Promote ethical, moral and spiritual values in the areas of economics, commerce, trade, international relations, ecological integrity, global media reporting and communication, as well as personal virtues;
  • Advance understanding and action on major global issues by civil society, the private enterprise, the public sector, governments, and national and international institutions;
  • Promote collaborative policy solutions to the challenges posed by globalisation;
  • Discuss the implications of marketplace and economic issues; and
  • Analyze and discuss the problems and challenges of globalization not merely from an economic point of view, but also from ethical and moral perspectives.


GCGI Journal will, therefore, commit itself to a wide range of multi-cultural activities that are aimed at promoting and debating on the cutting-edge of scholarly activities, research and education in the field of Globalization for the Common Good. Our emphasis is on progressive thinking and providing progressive perspectives on a wide range of global issues.

GCGI Journal does not intend to espouse and defend a single discipline or paradigm, but seeks to allow a broad, pluralistic range of viewpoints and models to be represented, compared, and ultimately synthesised into a richer understanding of the inherently complex global systems.

GCGI Journal seeks a sustained commitment among academics and practitioners to learn from each other, to explore new patterns of thinking together, and to facilitate the derivation and implementation of effective policies for the realization of Globalization for the Common Good.

GCGI Journal is committed to the idea of global cooperation and dialogue between scholars, business leaders, policy makers, opinion leaders and leading NGOs. Our aim is that co-operation between researchers from these varied backgrounds, will lead to a more informed and balanced understanding of the behaviour, motivation and objectives of the various forces, agents and policy makers that form the globalization process.

GCGI Journal welcomes papers, articles, interviews, and commentaries related to the following issues, amongst others, from thinkers, writers, researchers, and scholars throughout the world:
