Organizing social benefits comprehensively. The effect is the re-energizing of social benefit systems to effectively serve all men.
An integral part of repatterning distribution of benefits to allow individual participation in local economic planning, and in establishing working standards and in planning the employment of workers' skills.
Tactics include: benefit distribution to shift the understanding of distribution patterns toward the necessity and possibility for equalizing society's benefits for all; comprehensive sustenance to allow every man to acquire those basic abilities and resources for maintaining reasonable living standards; information procedures to provide for methods of distributing to the individual the necessary, commonly consensed information pertaining to the needs and priorities of equitable distribution; benefit distribution to analyse current distribution methods and test new models to determine more adequate standardizing procedures; and benefits arbitration to define ways in which every man participates in judging the actualization of distribution arenas. An example is the commissioning of an evaluation committee to criticize and redesign existing systems to maintain comprehensiveness.
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.
