Through a conference that was attended by activists of social movements such as Occupy-London, members of global NGOs and prestigious lecturers of the international academy, the Manifesto for a Global Democracy has been presented at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences.
The interesting panel included writers and researchers such as Richard Sennett (New York University-LSE), Daniele Archibugi (CNR-Italy), Fernando Iglesias (UB-UCES-CUIA), Mathias Koenig-Archibugi (LSE) and Saskia Sassen (LSE -Columbia University).
The Manifesto is a pluralistic statement about the need of global and democratic approaches on global issues such as nuclear proliferation, climate change and financial crisis. It proposes the democratization of the UN and other international organizations and the progressive creation of democratic global institutions such as a UN Parliamentary Assembly.
The Conference was the first in a series that includes Rome (September), Buenos Aires (November) and many other global metropolis.
