Reforming International Rule Making

Many elements of the international rule making system are flawed. They are undemocratic, lack transparency, and have unequal power relationships between their members. Because the creation of a global demos is still a ‘distant dream’, this article makes the case for a more modest proposal for an international agreement on international administrative procedures which would start us on the path to constitutional order at the global level. This proposal would seek to standardize the process of decision making internationally, ensuring all international institutions follow evidence based procedures, and that all their recommendations would be subject to an external judicial review.
