Time for global democracy

Seminar in Stockholm with Democracy without Borders and the Institute for Future Studies

How should we deal with global catastrophic risks such as climate change, weapons of mass destruction and ecological collapse? The international community has not yet adapted to contemporary issues. Could a world parliament be the answer to the need to reform global governance?

On October 25th the Global Challenges Foundation, together with Democracy Without Borders and the Institute for Future Studies, organizes a seminar presenting and discussing the book A World Parliament: Governance and Democracy in the 21st Century by Andreas Bummel.

The author Andreas Bummel, discusses the idea of a world parliament with Adrienne Sörbom; sociologist at Stockholm University and Hans Agné; political scientist at Stockholm University.
