A World Parliament: Governance and Democracy in the 21st Century
Jo Leinen and Andreas Bummel, 2018
Global challenges such as war, climate change, poverty and inequality are overwhelming nation-states and today’s international institutions. Doing the right thing requires more than having the right policies; it requires having the right political structures to implement them. Achieving a peaceful, just and sustainable world civilization requires an evolutionary leap forward towards a federal global government. The creation of a democratic world parliament is the centerpiece of this project. This book describes the history, today’s relevance and future implementation of this monumental idea.
