Migrations

Migrants spearhead an unprecedented political-cultural battle: to open new routes to the world
¤ François Soulard ¤ 15 September 2016
“"The river that carries everything away is called violent, but no one calls violent the bed that oppresses it". - Bertold Brecht “It is not the earth that moves this time, it is we, migrants. The migrants, all those people going through the many forms of human mobility, we are a substantial part of the new world reality and also an emblematic expression of its contradictions and challenges”. Latin American letter from migrants Human migrations are surely the most compulsive transnational (...) read more

Democratizing Borders
¤ Etienne Balibar ¤ 5 May 1997
National borders have drawn up anti-democratic conditions from a partial, limited, unreal democracy, obtained within the framework of some nations. The author has concentrated on these problems, sketching the possible course of the current potential violence through border, towards the concept of a democratization of these institutions, without which any project for creating a new citizenship in Europe would be contradictory and incomplete. What is a border? This question is old and new at (...) read more

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

Post-2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future
¤ European Report on Development (ERD) ¤ 5 June 2013
Based on an assessment of the MDG experience and on an analysis of the changing international context and likely trends for the next 20-30 years, the ERD 2013 attempts to identify key potential drivers of a global partnership for development post-2015. Three such drivers are highlighted: Money: Development Finance. A fundamental question for an ambitious post-2015 agenda is how to both raise additional development finance and make it more effective. The Report points to the importance of (...) read more

Swords into Plowshares
¤ James A. Yunker ¤ 4 June 2013
Using a simulation model, this research examines the potential impact of a very large-scale foreign development-assistance program (a “Global Marshall Plan”), financed largely from reallocation of military expenditure, on the future development of the world economy. The model’s key premise is that inequality among nations in per capita income is all or mostly due to differentials in generalized capital stocks. Generalized capital encompasses all reproducible primary factors of production other (...) read more

You can see here the 2011 Report: * The main article (English) (Français) (Español) (中文) * The WGI document (English) (Français) * The WGI Map (English) (Français) (Español) (中文) Developing a new world governance constitutes one of the major challenges of our times, perhaps the most important of all.

Legal Principles of a New World Governance

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 Declaration’s point of departure is the idea that civil society plays a fundamental role in facing the social, political, and technological challenges that contemporary global society presents. For this reason it is provided with the UDEHR, an additional (...) read more

The Emergence of Global Administrative Law
¤ Benedict Kingsbury, Nico Krisch, Richard B. Stewart ¤ 20 October 2010
Emerging patterns of global governance are being shaped by a little-noticed but important and growing body of global administrative law. In this article we begin the task of identifying some patterns of commonality and connection sufficiently deep and farreaching as to constitute an embryonic field of global administrative law. We point to some factors encouraging the development of common approaches, and to mechanisms of learning, borrowing, and cross-referencing, that are contributing to (...) read more


Citizens’ Reappropriation of Politics

Global Civil Society: Shifting Powers in a Shifting World
¤ Heidi Moksnes, Mia Melin ¤ 18 September 2012
What is global civil society? And what is the meaning of global civil society? A few years ago, there was a debate on whether a global civil society existed or not. Today, few people doubt the existence of a global political space, and research on “global civil society” has emerged as a sub-field of study in the broader context of globalisation theory and research. Over the past decades, civil society has been considered increasingly important to socio-economic development and in political (...) read more


Environmental Governance and Managing the Earth

The Commons and World Governance
¤ Arnaud Blin, Gustavo Marin ¤ 2 August 2012
It is only by moving from the idea of individual protection to the idea of protection of all that we can start to envisage the possibility of a global social contract. In other words, it is our global freedom, that is, our freedom to enjoy, thus to protect, what is common to all of us as a world community that will entice us to, and determine our will to extract ourselves from what is essentially becoming a global war on our planet, on our “commons,” and on ourselves. But what does this (...) read more

The World Governance Index (WGI)
¤ FnWG Team, Renaud François ¤ 23 December 2011
The Forum for a new World Governance (FnWG) launched the World Governance Index - WGI project in 2008. The idea was to develop a “tool” that would allow the players in charge of governance to be aware of the emerging issues and problems, and to help them to find the necessary solutions. The paper “Rethinking Global Governance” defines the general objectives of this effort—to reduce inequalities, establish sustainable development, and build peace in a world of diversity—and frames some (...) read more
