Project details

The World Federalist Movement is an international citizen's movement working for justice, peace, and sustainable prosperity. It calls for an end to the rule of force, through a world governed by law, based on strengthened and democratized world institutions. World federalists support the creation of democratic global structures accountable to the citizens of the world and call for the division of international authority among separate agencies.

From 27 to 31st August 2007, the World Federalist Movement is getting together for the 60th anniversary XXV WFM World Congress--a global gathering of World Federalists and their friends and allies. This convocation brings together delegations from 35 member and associated organizations of WFM, as well as distinguished guests, leaders within our Movement, United Nations officials, government leaders and partners from prominent non-governmental organizations.
