 North-South divide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The North-South divide is the socio-economic and political division that exists between the wealthy developed countries, known collectively as "the North", and the poorer developing countries, or "the South".
Although most nations comprising the "North" are in fact located in the Northern Hemisphere, the divide is not primarily defined by geography.
The global digital divide is often characterized as corresponding to the North-South divide, however it is interesting to note that Internet use, and especially broadband access, is now soaring in Asia compared with other continents.

 Global Apartheid Continues to Haunt Global Democracy- Social and Economic Policy - Global Policy Forum
Global apartheid, like globalization, is a buzzword that has evolved to describe a new global paradigm.
Current manifestations of global apartheid are exhibited in the dominance of bilateralism and the hegemonic behaviour of the United States, the unbalanced and undemocratic processes in the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the disproportionate power of multinational corporations and the Washington-based International Financial Institutions (IFIs).
This is reflected in the current global apartheid paradigm with unrealistic IFI conditionalities, stifling African development goals, especially when now-developed countries in the North used the very strategies now prohibited for their own development process.

 Globalization of Culture - Global Policy Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Identifying “three rounds of globalization,” this the Globalist article argues that “globalization is not a new thing.” The exchange of ideas between ancient civilizations — the first round — fueled the rise of the West with industrial revolution and imperialism — the second round.
By these dynamics, the world is returning towards global equity, where India and China have a share of world income roughly similar to their share of people — as in the early 19th century.
Japan and South Korea benefit from the globalization of culture, but China has yet to capitalize on the film, music, and art industries that serve the dual purpose of revenue and cultural promotion.

 Episcopal News Service Archives
Although 20 Anglican Provinces were represented at the September 19-22 meeting, not all the attendees endorsed the resulting communiqué and Ndungane was unaware of its contents or planned dissemination, he said in a September 24 statement that clarified some details about the four-day meeting.
Whereas Canon Livingstone Ngewu and I were present in Kigali, neither of us were made aware even of the possibility of a communiqué in the name of the Primates of the Global South, prior to its release.
Thus, for example, recent meetings of the Primates, in which the Global South played a very full part, requested various actions from the Archbishop of Canterbury, which he has been assiduous in pursuing; such as setting up the Lambeth Commission, the Panel of Reference, and now the Covenant Design Group.

 South Asia - Global Economic Prospects: Growth Prospects for South Asia
December 13, 2006 -- In 2006, GDP in South Asia is estimated to have expanded at a very rapid pace of 8.2%.
GDP in South Asia is projected to slow gradually to a still robust 7.5% in 2007 and 7% in 2008.
Factors contributing to the expected slowdown are weaker external demand, reflecting slower growth in the United States in 2007, tighter domestic monetary and fiscal policies, and tighter international monetary conditions.

 The Dilemma of Armed Struggle in the Global South
From the 1950s to the end of the 1980s, armed struggle in nations of the global South was widely accepted as a legitimate strategy for seeking political and social change.
There was also a tolerance by many governments in the global North of their own citizens who organized in solidarity with armed liberation groups such as the Palestinian Liberation Army, Nicaragua’s Sandinistas and El Salvador’s Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN).
The rise of the new globalized free market economic system coincided with U.S. policies of “democracy promotion.” As a result, armed struggle, the argument went, would become largely de-legitimized because citizens would have the ballot box as a means to effect change.

 Third World - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In general, Third World countries are not as industrialized or technologically advanced as OECD countries, and therefore in academia, the current term in use is "developing nation".
Terms such as Global South, developing countries, less economically developed countries (LEDC), least developed countries and the Majority World have become more popular in circles where the term "third world" is regarded to have derogatory or out-of-date connotations.
Some theorists, such as Andre Gunder Frank and Walter Rodney have used the term underdevelopment or underdeveloped world, to indicate the active process by which the global South has been locked out of development by imperialism and the post-colonial policies of the richer nations.

"Structural adjustment is a mechanism to shift the burden of economic mismanagement and financial mismanagement from the North to the South, and from the Southern elites to the Southern communities and people.

By the early 1980's, experts in the rich countries began to warn that countries in the South could not afford social insurance at all, or at least that major "reforms" would soon be necessary.
In an increasingly global economy, where the fates of all are closely intertwined, and where individual nation-states are often too weak to protect their own citizens, a global solution to income security is needed, including support for people in frail old age.

Global South is committed to provide our recognition, energy, prayers and experience to the Networks in the USA and Canada, the Convocation of Nigerian Anglicans in the USA, those who make Common Cause and the Missionary District that is gathering congregations that circumstances have pressed out of ECUSA.
If that is what the writers of the Global South Communiqué meant (as I agree they may well have done), they should not exaggerate by saying that such blessings “undermine the basic message of redemption and the power of the Cross to transform lives” and that the “leaders of these provinces.
