Abstract:

This poster session will present original research into the history of practical, political efforts to establish a constitutionally limited, democratically representative, federal world government in order to effectively abolish war. Historically, during the coming, waging, and aftermath of World War II, a number of people in and out of government in America and in the eventually 51 allied countries in the wartime “United Nations” urged that the failed League of Nations not be simply revived, even with U.S. membership, but be transformed into the beginnings of a representative world government. In principle, they argued that the moment had come to guide international organization through a transition like that when the United States under the Articles of Confederation (1781) passed to a more perfect union under the federal Constitution (1787). Europeans, too, looked to federation as an end to endemic wars, and in time the European Union would be the practical realization of such dreams. The presentation will be illustrated. It follows from my new book, The Politics of World Federation (Praeger, 2004). Vol. 1: United Nations, U.N. Reform, Atomic Control. Vol. 2: From World Federalism to Global Governance.
