Broadening and instructing the individual in the arenas of judicial procedure and decision-making in order that he becomes a more integral and active participant in the formation of social consensus. This enables the personal voice to be more instrumental in affecting the judiciary. The effect is that the judicial process is recontextualized for the individual as he comes to realize himself as a more influential, constructive, contributing individual, working to form the social consensus.
An integral part of recontextualizing judicial procedures through the establishment of a system of decision-making accountable to the demands both of the individual and of the global context.
Tactics include: remodeled education to effectively impact the individual in relationship to the judicial process by providing him with tools which make possible the voicing of his knowledgeable, invested decisions through consensus; institution expansion to recontextualize the judicial procedures through the individual by making readily available the environments necessary to provide the distribution of information and education; direct legal education of laymen in responsible decision-making and judicial procedure in relation to consensus, using modern methodology and curricula, made available in typical daily environmental situations which will allow each individual fuller participation; broadening and recontexting the role of the individual in relationship to judicial procedures, using media as the vehicle through which re-orientation in regard to world justice will take place via images and art forms; and individual motivation to enable each person to contribute to the judicial processes thus reflecting the understanding of global responsibility and allowing the addition of information sensitive to needs.
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.
