The people of Earth confront a common destiny without a coordinated way to mute dangers and pursue ambitions. As mounting crises reveal the inadequacy of the UN’s state-centric model, the idea of a constitutional world federation gains traction. Glen Martin’s opening essay introduces the Earth Constitution proposal for a new transnational political order. Three panels respond to this bold initiative: the first endorses the approach, the second favors different strategies, and the third spotlights the cultivation of inclusive, democratic processes.
