Reducing unethical activities relating to social security entitlements Reducing unemployment benefits fraud Abolishing unethical use of social welfare benefits
There are few worse cancers in society than social welfare benefits fraud. In the long run, less money becomes available to those people who really need it. Taxes may need to be raised or money may need to be diverted from other government programes in order to accommodate such fraud. The same fraudsters may not pay any income tax, and/or may supplement undeclared income with subsequent benefits, and so on. Social welfare benefits fraud is a nasty parasite: it only takes away from, it doesn't contribute anything, and it weakens society. It should be treated as a parasite: to be expelled.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
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.
