Globalization and its impact on the full enjoyment of all human rights : resolution / adopted by the General Assembly
Recognizes that, while globalization, by its impact on, inter alia, the role of the State, may affect human rights, the promotion and protection of all human rights is first and foremost the responsibility of the State; reaffirms that narrowing the gap between rich and poor, both within and between countries, is an explicit goal at the national and international levels; calls upon Member States, relevant agencies of the UN system, intergovernmental organizations and civil society to promote equitable and environmentally sustainable economic growth for managing globalization so that poverty is systematically reduced and the international development targets are achieved; affirms that globalization is a complex process of structural transformation, with numerous interdisciplinary aspects, which has an impact on the enjoyment of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to development; affirms also that the international community should strive to respond to the challenges and opportunities posed by globalization in a manner that ensures respect for the cultural diversity of all; underlines, therefore, the need to continue to analyse the consequences of globalization for the full enjoyment of all human rights; takes note of the report of the Secretary-General, and requests him to seek further the views of Member States and relevant agencies of the UN system and to submit a substantive report on the subject to the General Assembly at its 61st session.Adopted 121-53-4.
