Forum for a new World Governance (FnWG)

We need to rethink world governance and, to achieve this, we must go beyond the conceptual and ideological foundations of the current system. The Forum for a new World Governance (FnWG) encourages the development and circulation of new ideas in several languages. In this perspective, it submits in-depth papers for public online debate on a regular basis, offers a documentary base on the most recent theoretical developments on global governance, and is compiling Proposal Papers on the key aspects involved in world governance. These are intended to collect the most relevant proposals for generating the breakthroughs and mutations necessary for the construction of a new, fairer, and more sustainable world governance.
