Responsibly renewing present bureaucratic structures. The effect is to increase a grassroots participation in decisions.
An integral part of enabling participatory regulation by training the individual to enlarge his policy-making scope to a global level while participating at grassroots level; and by gathering, coordinating and distributing global information.
Tactics include: administrative liaison to set up communication networks and send indexed information; agency analysis to grid gathered data which will lift up inequities and create regulatory symbols; bureaucratic history to re-image the roles of bureaux, merchants, and tyrants so that the individual relates to bureaux as tools for everyman's benefit; administrative models to penetrate personnel by intentional employment placement and by exposure of present employees to new concepts; and service standards to review services expected and set up priorities.
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.
