A World Parliament

Governance and Democracy in the 21st Century

THE NEW BOOK ON GLOBAL DEMOCRACY BY JO LEINEN AND ANDREAS BUMMEL

Be it war, poverty, extreme social inequality, climate change or environmental destruction: Nation-states are not up to the global challenges of our time. Doing the right thing is not so much an issue of having the right policies; rather, it is an issue of having the right political structures. 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 the idea of a world parliament.

The original German edition of the book was published in March 2017 by Dietz-Verlag.

This outstanding and comprehensive study is the new standard work on the history, relevance and practical implementation of the idea of a world parliament, one that has been lacking for a long time. It’s a milestone in the debate on the democratisation of global governance
