We the Peoples Redux
recent pronouncements by the UN Secretary General and other officials suggest the tide may be turning toward an ethic of global citizenship. The emergent post-2015 development agenda offers a new opportunity to reassert global citizenry as a core change agent in our interdependent century. Indeed, it may take a global citizens movement to effectively challenge the status quo and bring new forms of accountability as governments, corporations, and civil society jockey for influence and resources. In the longer term, such a movement is the best hope for redesigning existing institutions and fashioning new ones that truly advance the common interests of we the people of Earth.
