What is a global democracy?

The Building Global Democracy Programme explores how ‘people’s rule’ can be understood and practiced in relation to global issues. How can democracy be meaningful in today’s more global world? How can affected people participate in and control the governance of global concerns such as climate change, financial crises, health challenges, human rights, internet communications, security problems, and trade?

We have been around for quite some time, the Building Global Democracy was founded back in 2008 with the goal and idea to bring people together. Bringing people together is not easy, especially when they have a different view on things in politics and democracy. Of course, the start was hard for us, but quickly enough we found a solution.
