About this book

This volume exhibits international law maturing into world law through world constitutional and parliamentary processes.

Self-governing democratic processes emerge globally under the direction of world citizens who take initiative, insisting on human dignity, individual accountability, and peaceful world relations.

The volume presents the Constitution for the Federation of Earth in standardized format, with form and style corrections, keeping all substantive content of the original 1991 version. It also includes the memorials, resolutions, and legislative summaries of the Provisional World Parliament during its first ten sessions, 1982 to 2007.

Dr. Terence Amerasinghe recounts the 50 year history of the World Constituent Assemblies and the Provisional World Parliament. Dr. Almand clarifies interpretations of the democratic and non-military Constitution, showing why no amendments are needed before the nations and people of Earth ratify the Constitution. Dr. Martin analyses the problem of origins and legitimacy of emerging world law, showing the difficulties and dynamics of transforming presently outmoded international institutions in the direction of a genuine global democracy.
