Providing methods and structures to assure that the individual will receive a compensation for his work, thus providing occupational incentive and equitable treatment. The effect is the re-imaging the worker's view of himself or herself as a responsible and equal participant in the decision-making process relative to his employment, rather than as a victim of the system.
An integral part of integrating labour capabilities through a global network of employable exchanges.
Tactics include: participation design to provide channels for the participation of all age groups in the policy and decision-making process; occupational planning to provide tools for building comprehensive visions for assuring job security; methods development to train in the use of tools for honouring the wisdom of all in correcting labour irregularities; adequate income to provide equitable compensation for every man; and joint committee to enable employer-employees to share management's responsibilities and provide accountability. An example is the creation of a local organization of tenant farmers which negotiates with farmers on wages and communicates with other similar organizations for support and wisdom.
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.
