International trade, global financial markets and high speed technologies have connected individuals and communities beyond the borders of their countries. At the same time, there is an awareness that only global cooperation can solve poverty and epidemics, stop wars, and reverse environmental degradation and climate change. With this awareness has come the realisation that individuals, communities, corporations and countries have obligations to one another that are global in their reach. Understanding these obligations is an important part of global citizenship.
