The idea for a global parliament, a citizen legislature, and the sovereignty of the human being dates back centuries. It’s an idea with roots in ancient Greece and the Roman Republic. It traces back to birth of the United States, the French Revolution and the establishment of the U.N. out of the rubble of World War II. This week on Wake we’ll talk with the leader of a movement to create a global parliament aimed at addressing major problems that nation states are struggling to address. Andreas Bummel, director of Democracy Without Borders and author of "A World Parliament: Governance and Democracy in the 21st Century."
