Harmonizing technology for electronic trading systems
At present, the stock exchanges of the same region usually show great diversity both from the point of view in terms of level of automation and of the systems applied. The final aim of this exercise is an interconnected regional electronic trading and settlement system among interested stock exchanges, more or less following the example of the BEIA project.
Harmonization of innovations and upgrading in telecommunications and computer technologies on a regional scale is an important precondition for a regional stock exchange. A modernized and uniform system of electronic interconnection of stock exchanges facilitates the cross-border transfer of funds, as well as cross-border trading and settlement.
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.
