CGS is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-partisan membership-based organization that for more than 75 years has brought together a diverse collective of individuals and organizations with a common goal of a unified world predicated upon peace, human rights, and the rule of law. From championing ratification of the UN Charter upon our establishment in 1947 to supporting the creation of the International Criminal Court (ICC) 25 years ago to advocating for global instruments to confront today’s enduring challenges of war and climate degradation, CGS recognizes that true progress is a generational enterprise. We invite like-minded individuals and organizations to join us in this mission.
Today, we operate through our Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and our Action Network, a 501(c)(4) organized for our advocacy work. We are a member organization of the World Federalist Movement–Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP), a global network of like-minded organizations dedicated to our core cause, and are proud to be in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
