Reviewing principles of governance: branches of government at the global level
Keywords:global studies, global constitutionalism, United Nations Charter, Sustainable Development Goals, Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), United Nations Parliamentary Assembly
The articles in this issue of Policy Quarterly explore the challenges facing humanity in the modern age, and the implications they hold for political and legal thought. The essence of global studies is to explore those implications from a new perspective, a new world view which assumes the existence of a global community – ‘we the peoples’ – whose common interests must be met by the international community of states collaborating together in qualitatively different ways. The thinking, therefore, extends to addressing the concept of global constitutionalism.
