Global Democracy & Governance
How might the people of our world work with one another to govern ourselves more effectively on a global level? Are there alternatives to the current global decisions, policies, and practices that drive war, extreme poverty, and the unchecked power and influence of wealthy corporations? One of our most cherished values is the idea that everyone is equal under the law; when people around the world share that view and agree on what the law is, we are all better off.
We envision and advocate for enhanced global governance, including stages toward an eventual united federation of nations. Certain institutional innovations inside and outside the United Nations could in the meantime help avert armed conflict, finance environmental restoration, and empower civil society’s voice in global decision-making.
