Former Director-General of the World Trade Organization and former New Zealand Prime Minister the Right Honourable Mike Moore has launched his new book, Saving Globalization, at the University of Adelaide today.

An Adjunct Professor with the University's School of Economics, Professor Moore is CEO of the Moore Group, advising governments and businesses worldwide and specialising in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

He is involved with a number of think tanks and development groups, including the Global Leadership Foundation. In 2010 he intends to launch a new organisation that will help fund schools in developing countries.

Saving Globalization is his 10th book. It argues that globalisation and democracy offer the best hope for progress, peace and development in the world.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright has said of the book: "Saving Globalization provides an eloquent and persuasive defence of liberal democracy at a time when democratic values are embattled and scoffed at by some, under-valued and taken for granted by others. Mike Moore's insights are relentlessly sensible, brilliantly presented, and sure to infuriate those who have concluded that democracy is either inefficient or unfashionable. I expect this welcome book to serve for years to come as an arsenal of facts for advocates of democracy and development."

The book launch was hosted by the University of Adelaide's Institute for International Trade.
