Why are you a world federalist?
“I strongly believe that the collaborative work of local and international civil society has the power to influence the development of strong and democratic world institutions that can effectively guarantee the human rights of all individuals and ensure accountability”.
What is the future you are working towards?
“A fair and equitable world governed by a rules-based order whose main aim is the protection of all human beings and their rights, and where all victims of human rights and international humanitarian law violations have access to justice”.
