Religion and World Order: Proceedings of the Symposium on Religion and Global Governance (Washington, DC, February 4, 1994).
Mische, Patricia, Ed.
This proceedings focuses on religion and global governance, and addresses what kind of new world order will be present in the 21st century. Members of seven different religious traditions spoke from their perspectives on the contribution of religion to the development of ethical and humane systems of global governance, with special relevance to human rights, peace and conflict resolution, economic well-being, ecological sustainability and cultural integrity. The panelists interacted among themselves and with the audience on how the world's religions can contribute their traditions, memories, faith, and spirituality in a positive way to shape future global structures of mind and global political entities. In particular, they discussed: (1) proposed elements of a shared global ethic; (2) the requirements for a truly global civic society; (3) policies, systems, and instruments to support a global society; and (4) multi-religious strategies for advancing effective world systems.
