Bringing to bear upon the judicial process the symbols and principles of a globally derived concept of justice. The effect is a judicial leadership which begins to make decisions for the sake of all men.
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: to create structures to evaluate the judicial process; to design educational structures for broadening context of justice to the global level through courses for judicial profession, use of media and the creation of symbols and rituals for the judiciary; to review performance by the comprehensive study of records of key justices and determine their philosophy; to provide new methodologies for decision-making and enabling the reflective and research work of judges; and to construct a model for establishing relationships with key judges in key areas and working out short courses and popular preaching. An example would be workshops provided for all levels of people from all over the globe, who take part in judicial processes, which would deal with the symbols of justice from all over the world.
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.
