Global challenges such as war, poverty, inequality and climate change are overwhelming nation-states and today’s international institutions. Can the creation of a democratic world parliament help achieve a peaceful, just and sustainable world community?
Andreas Bummel will discuss the ideas from his new book co-authored with Jo Leinen A World Parliament: Governance and Democracy in the 21st Century with Dr Theresa Squatrito.
