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 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.
