Nainital, India, July 2-8, 2009
Theme: “Freedom, Harmony, and Peace”
International Philosophers for Peace is calling for scholarly papers within the broad framework of “freedom, harmony, and peace” for presentation at its 12th International Conference. The this theme, which is the theme of the wider, larger, peace conference of which IPPNO will be a part, has been left intentionally broad to accommodate a wide variety of papers on the topic of peace.
Papers may address freedom and peace within specific conflicts. They may address ways of developing harmony within diverse conflicting groups, religions, nations, or cultures. They may wish to develop the notion of peace through perspectives on nonviolence (a topic of considerable interest in India). They may wish to address the perspectives of individual thinkers (e.g. Levinas, Dussel, Habermas, or Rawls) in relation to peace. Or, as a final example, papers may wish to address questions of terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, imperialism, or economic exploitation in relation to peace and freedom.
Send a 500 word abstract to Dr. Glen T. Martin, IPPNO President, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Radford University, Radford VA 24142, USA.

Call to the
Eleventh Session of the Provisional World Parliament
July 2-8, 2009, Nainital, India
To all world citizens and persons concerned about the future of humanityB
The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA), organizing agent for the Provisional World Parliament, has arranged the Eleventh Session of the Parliament to meet for Nainital, India, July 2-8, 2009 in conjunction with International Philosophers for Peace Conference.
We issue this call in conformance with Article 19 of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth that grants the people of Earth the legal right to begin Provisional World Government until such time as the Earth Constitution has been fully ratified under the provisions set forth in Article 17.
Both Observers to the parliament and Delegates are welcome!Both may participate actively in the proceedings. Only delegates (who have pledged their allegiance to the Earth Constitution) may vote. The developing Earth Federation Movement (EFM) is expressed in these historic parliaments held in Brighton, England (1982), New Delhi, India (1985), Miami Beach, USA (1987), Barcelona, Spain (1996), Malta (2001), Bangkok, Thailand (March 2003), Chennai, India (December 2003), Lucknow, India (2004), Tripoli, Libya (2006), and Lome, Togo (2007). The Eleventh Session in Nainital will be such an historic event: we are building a truly new world order within the shell of the old!!
Today's world situation calls for a World Parliamentto continually build the body of world law, modeling for the rest of the world the way human problems are properly addressed. It also demands immediate action to establish democratic world government in accordance with the Constitution for the Federation of Earth. Global climate change continues to create disaster for peoples everywhere and is getting worse each day. Global weapons of mass destruction continue to threaten the existence of life on Earth. Depleted uranium weapons used massively in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to poison our planetary environment forever. Global tyranny under the world's superpower increases daily. The resources of the Earth (land, forests, fisheries, clean water) disappear at astonishing rates. Pollution and toxic waste contaminate ever larger portions of the Earth. We must act now!
Reserve the dates. Begin planning now!
