The European Union, the United Nations, and the Revival of Confederal Governance

Synopsis

Before it became a federation, the United States was briefly a "confederation," a much looser union composed of states rather than of peoples. "Unions of states" to promote ecomomic well-being and to prevent war are now being revived. Mr. Lister analyzes modern confederalism, and how it is functioning in the single market of the Europen Union and how it might function if the collective security system of the United Nations could be carried out, as originally planned, by a confederal-style partnership of the world's independent states.
