Songs with a global consciousness

I wanted to pick the hive mind a bit with regards to Music that deals with global issues. My Daughter is working on a great project about modern songs that would have stories about problems in the world. The first thing I could think of was We are the World but well that just doesn't do it for her (or me really). She had some more criteria as we walked through what she would like...

No anti-war songs (those are to "easy")
Preferably from the point of view of a person that has been through or is in that position now
Not so western focused
She likes most types of music and I would love to here as many suggestions as possible as NOW I want to hear some newer ones from around the world.
