Global Law & Security

 

Global Law & Security

The world is technologically connected but institutionally divided with few global institutions to protect citizens. Nation states protect the rights of their citizens, but they can also kill the citizens of other countries. Technological advances, such as drones and the Internet, could be used to promote sectarianism and hatred. I believe we need to develop new ideas and practices.

In the 21st century we need global institutions that can address global problems such as transnational crimes, climate change and global trade. The innovative Rome Statute design can be exported to other arenas. Abuses of power such as Grand Corruption should be addressed. In the 21st century, we need more than global leadership. We need a peaceful revolution to create new global institutions that will protect the rights of all citizens of the world. We must learn to improve global governance without a global government.
