The paper analyzes the globalization process and its relationship with human development. To fulfill this aim, the nature of globalization in the current world development stage, as well as human development, are explained, as criteria to asses how the benefits of this process may have reached less developed countries. The objective is to determine in which way is possible to reorient the globalization process, in order to promote the global and local human development. It is concluded that as long as the current world capitalist reproduction scheme persists, globalization will tend to primary benefit a small group of highly developed countries, to the detriment of most people in the planet, and turning out more difficult to overcome human development challenges.
