The inequality predicament : report on the world social situation 2005 by United Nations( )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report focuses on the chasm between the formal and informal economies, the widening gap between skilled and unskilled workers, the growing disparities in health, education and opportunities for social, economic and political participation. Departing from approaches that have focused on economic growth as a panacea to development problems, the Report notes that a focus on growth and income generation neither sufficiently captures nor addresses the inter-generational transmission of poverty; it can lead to the accumulation of wealth by a few and deepen the poverty of many. In fact, despite considerable economic growth in many regions, the world is more unequal than it was 10 years ago

World public sector report 2005 : unlocking the human potential for public sector performance by United Nations( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conditions of globalization, including economic integration, fiscal discipline, introduction of information communications technologies and democratic governance, have increasingly forced states to redefine their role in public management and to reform the public administration system. However, there is growing realization among decision makers that policy and institutional reform per se will not be sufficient to revitalize the public sector. Major strengthening of the knowledge, skills, values, attitudes and leadership abilities of human capital is also needed to transform the public sector, particularly in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. This year's report is expected to contribute to global and national debates on this topic.--Publisher's description
