"Whilst international organisations and negotiations will remain essentially the domain of intergovernmental co-operation, the democratic accountability of existing organisations should also be improved through the increased participation of national parliaments in global economic management.

Report from the Helsinki Process on Globalisation and Democracy, co-chaired by Foreign Ministers Jakaya M. Kikwete from Tanzania and Erkki Tuomioja from Finland, August 2005
