Designing A Replacement For The UN

Russell L. Ackoff and Jamshid Gharajedaghi

The UN is not effective in creating peace or order in the world. We have produced an idealized design of an institution to replace it: a Union of Democratic Nations. This is intended to provoke discussion that will approach a desirable and feasible alternative to the UN. The properties desired of the Union are specified and the procedure and requirements for joining it. Rules for separation from the Union are also formulated, as are conditions for continued membership. The services to be provided are specified and the system of governance is designed. Finally, the rights of member states are described.
