The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA)

 The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA) was founded in 1958 by Philip and Margaret Isely from the U.S. who understood that the world has no future unless it is democratically governed, peaceful, environmentally sustainable and just.  They were joined by Dr. Reinhart Ruge from Mexico and Dr. Terence Amerasinghe from Sri Lanka, and world citizens from many countries, in a movement to write a democratic, non-military Constitution for the Federation of Earth.

 

 

The Constitution for the Federation of Earth

Together with thousands of world citizens from many countries they organized four global constituent assemblies in Interlaken, Switzerland (1968), Innsbruck, Austria (1977), Colombo, Sri Lanka (1979), and Troia, Portugal (1991).  The result of the work of these thousands of world citizens and international legal experts was to write the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.   Since 1991, the Constitution has been considered as a finished document available to humanity for ratification and inauguration of a peaceful, just, environmentally sustainable and free world system.

Dr. Glen T. Martin wrote this introduction and commentary for the Earth Constitution.  It is available from IED Press (www.iedpress.com),  Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble.com. The Constitution itself is also on-line in many places.
This Constitution is our blueprint for a sustainable, just, and peaceful world civilization.

The Earth Federation Movement


The Earth Federation Movement (EFM) is the social movement of all the NGOs, governments, individuals, and groups that support ratification of the Earth Constitution.  Under Article 19 of the Earth Constitution, the people of Earth are mandated to start the democratic world government here and now.  There is no need to wait for the warring crazies, imperialist maniacs, political criminals, and corrupt bankers who now run most nation-states to decide to stop destroying the Earth. Under the authority of the Earth Constitution, the World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA) has created and developed the Provisional World Parliament (PWP), beginning with its first session at the famed Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England in 1982.  13 sessions of the Parliament have been held to date in various locations around the world, drawing citizens internationally to take charge of our own future as human beings and begin democratically governing ourselves.


The Provisional World Parliament

The Parliament operates under the authority of Article 19 of the Earth Constitution. It has passed to date some 61 World Legislative Acts (in conformity with the Earth Constitution) that model, outline, and enable the decent future for humanity. WCPA also transformed the early Graduate School of World Problems into the Institute on World Problems (IOWP), which is a non-profit, tax deductible educational organization that works with WCPA and the Provisional World Parliament to study the interrelation of world problems and their coherent, integrated solutions under the Earth Constitution.  The texts of these 61 world legislative acts, and many resolutions from various sessions of the Parliament, are posted on the IOWP website.
