Dialog of Chinese, European, and South American Civil Societies at Rio+20
¤ 19 January 2013
"Impossible ideas are fundamental to have and to dream about, but more importantly, to make them possible." Civil societies from different parts of the world have been conversing and sharing ideas for more than 20 years. The purpose of these dialogs has been to contribute to the building of a global community, outside of governmental relations. The video here reflects exchanges among Chinese, South American, and European civil-society members. It is about how each society is facing its own (...) read more


Legal Principles of a New World Governance

Global Governance and the Achievement of a Universal Civil Society
¤ Arnaud Blin ¤ 26 March 2014
I SUPPOSE men to have reached the point at which the obstacles in the way of their preservation in the state of nature show their power of resistance to be greater than the resources at the disposal of each individual for his maintenance in that state. That primitive condition can then subsist no longer; and the human race would perish unless it changed its manner of existence… But, as men cannot engender new forces, but only unite and direct existing ones, they have no other means of (...) read more

Universal Declaration of Emerging Human Rights
¤ 3 October 2012
The Universal Declaration of Emerging Human Rights (UDEHR) is a programmatic instrument of international civil society aimed at state actors and other institutional forums for the crystallization of human rights in the new millennium.

The Great Together
¤ Confucius, Los Cuatro Payasos Muertos, Traversées, Wikipedia ¤ 7 June 2011
Confucius (孔子 -kǒngzǐ-, literally “Master Kong”) (September 28, 551 B.C. - 479 BC) was a Chinese thinker, the creator of Confucianism, and one of the most influential figures in Chinese history.

Dictionary of World Power
¤ FnWG Team ¤ 27 September 2013
Since the end of the last century, the world has been facing a set of challenges that the existing institutions are unable to address and solve. This is a fact that has been confirmed over the last thirty years through a succession of all kinds of crises. Citizens have found that the beautiful ideal of freedom preached by free-market sycophants is just a facade set up to conceal the altar of greed. The Forum for a new World Governance explores these changes in this extensive work, only (...) read more


Citizens’ Reappropriation of Politics

Can Democracy Survive Interdependence?
¤ Benjamin R. Barber ¤ 9 January 2013
Democracy today is challenged, radically, deeply, fatefully. Born and cultivated in the ancient world as the face-to-face participatory township, and successfully re-imagined in the early modern world as the representative nation-state, it must now adapt to a global, networked, interdependent world. Or likely perish. To survive actually, it must find ways to establish itself virtually. To preserve its local vitality, it must achieve a global compass. Democracy has always been plural, a (...) read more


The Architecture of World Governance

Moving Toward a New World Governance
¤ Arnaud Blin, Gustavo Marin, Michel Rocard ¤ 6 July 2010
We are incontestably in a period in which we have broken away from a now vanished former order—insofar as “order” can apply to the Cold War—a period in which the world is seeking a new architecture of the world governance, seeking, in short, a governance yet to be found, that will be capable of apprehending the moment’s problems, anticipating tomorrow’s crises, and writing day-after-tomorrow’s history. In other words, seeking a governance system adapted to a henceforth globalized world, a “world (...) read more
