Goals

The Institute for Global Peace and Sustainable Governance looks to support academic study and research at the tertiary level into questions of global governance, including

  • The global issues that impel us towards an improved system of global governance;
  • The present framework of global governance, analysing in particular its problems and deficiencies;
  • The ways in which our system of global governance might be improved.

The Institute also looks to support community education and outreach on issues of peace, democracy and global governance, including

  • Curriculum development and teaching materials for schools;
  • Seminars and conferences involving NGOs concerned with issues of peace and governance, both secular and religion-based, on an interfaith basis.

As a flagship program here, we have recently inaugurated a series of Model Global Parliaments around the country.

The Institute also supports advocacy by NGOs seeking to promote the objective of democratic global governance.
