A Global Parliament: Essays and Articles
Richard Falk and Andrew Strauss, 2011
Democracy is the guiding principle for fairly and peacefully making community decision at the local, provincial, and national levels of human society. In this compilation of their collected works, Falk and Strauss argue for a practical approach to now finally extending democratic decision-making to the global system.
“At a time when many in civil society question the legitimacy of our international architecture, and globalization brings home the reality that no nation alone — mighty or modest — can hope to solve our interconnected challenges, the global community needs to reconsider its conduct of international affairs. Of fundamental importance is how to involve the will of the global polity. Professors Falk and Strauss offer fresh thinking and creative ideas for doing just that. This book is a must read for those who care about our common future.” - Mike Moore, Former Prime Minister of New Zealand and
former Director General of the World Trade Organisation
