In the well-known ancient Indian parable, several blind men touch an elephant to learn what it is like.  The one who feels a leg thinks an elephant is like a pillar.  The one who feels the tail thinks it is like a rope.   Another who feels the trunk thinks it is like a tree branch.[3]

Conversations about globalization often[4] share this characteristic.  Those who focus on factory closures and outsourcing see globalization as causing job losses and lower wages in the developed world.  Those who focus on factory disasters such as those in Bangladesh see it contributing to unsafe conditions and poor labor standards for workers in developing countries.

With the success in 2013, EFN Asia and FNF Korea decided to continue to co-host a session in the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity 2014 in Jeju island, Korea. The big umbrella of the whole event is ‘Designing New Asia.’ Our session’s theme is ‘Globalization and Inequality.’ With the recent worldwide Piketty phenomenon and inequality situations in many Asian countries, we firmly believe that it is a topic we have to discuss and share our views.

The forum has started in 2001 and continued to attract participants around the world. It is expected that this year there were more than 4,000 participants altogether. Huge crowd of people attended two-and-a-half-day-event held during 28-30 May 2014.  Notable figures of this year include Julia Gillard, former prime minister of Australia, Salam Fayyad, former prime minister of state of Palestine, Li Zhaoxing, former foreign minister of China and Carly Fiorina, former president of Hewlettt-Packard.
