Foreword

The International Forum for Social Development was a three-year project undertaken by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs between November 2001 and November 2004 for the purpose of promoting international cooperation for social development and supporting developing countries and social groups not benefiting from the globalization process. “Open Societies, Open Economies: Challenges and Opportunities” represented the overall theme of the project, which was financed through extrabudgetary contributions and carried out within the framework of the implementation of the outcome of the World Summit for Social Development, held in Copenhagen in 1995, and of subsequent major international gatherings, including the Millennium Summit and the twenty-fourth special session of the General Assembly, held in New York and Geneva, respectively, in 2000.
