    6. International Monetary Fund
      The term "globalization" has acquired considerable emotive force. Some view it as a process that is beneficial--a key to future world economic development--and also inevitable and irreversible. Others regard it with hostility, even fear, believing that it increases inequality within and between nations, threatens employment and living standards and thwarts social progress. This brief offers an overview of some aspects of globalization and aims to identify ways in which countries can tap the gains of this process, while remaining realistic about its potential and its risks.
    7. The Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education
      "SPICE" serves as a bridge between Stanford University and K-14 schools by developing multidisciplinary curriculum materials on international themes. As a program of the Institute for International Studies, SPICE reflects the scholarship of Stanford University in its curricula and professional development seminars for teachers. The curricula and seminars focus on contemporary issues in the context of their cultural and historical underpinnings.
