The last 10 years has witnessed an increase in the development of boarding schools, behavior modification schools, emotional growth schools and attitude adjustment camps for teenagers that use brainwashing, child abuse and child torture that violate the civil and human rights of the teenager. These schools conduct sophisticated marketing efforts that target parents with troubled teenagers--such as youth with drug or alcohol abuse problems, attention deficit disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, and gender identity disorder, among others. Professing to offer behavioral and therapeutic solutions, these schools can practice involuntary treatment methods, shock therapy, coercive escort services, and other violations of the rights of teenagers.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
