Abstract: Global strangeness production in relativistic heavy ion collisions at SPS andRHIC is reviewed. Special emphasis is put on the comparison with thestatistical model and the canonical suppression mechanism. It is shown thatrecent RHIC data on strange particle production as a function of centrality canbe explained by a superposition of a fully equilibrated hadron gas and particleemission from single independent nucleon-nucleon collisions in the outercorona.
