Incorporating minority factions into decision making
Channelling minority voice
Honouring minority wisdom in decision-making processes and resurrecting the individual's capacity for fulfilling the role of negation as a creative dynamic. Also, demanding and training every individual to participate responsibly in opinion forming and decision-making processes in order to raise up and incorporate the minority voice in the decision-making process.
Tactics include: Re-imaging responsible opposition, formulating opposition opinion, activating dissenter participation, communicating minority concern, and structuring wisdom protection.
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.
