Setting the groundwork for and finally constructing a global judicial system which would provide equitable justice for all men. The effect is empowering the judicial process to set controls on global executive powers and, at the same time, enabling individuals to participate in the legislative processes bringing about the possibility of caring for everyone.
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: process penetration to move people with a global vision of justice into international judicial processes; need clarification to provide the means for the researching of the issues of world justice and the structures provided to deal with those issues; structural development is intended to create the structures by which a global expression of the rights of man is brought to bear upon the international judicial process; international structures intended to provid the means for moving the relevant judicial structures towards an effective world justice system; and design rationale intended to enable the creation of images and ideas which hold the needs for a global system of justice and the possibilities for bringing into being such a system. An example would b the World Court of the United Nations.
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.
