International Humanitarian Organisation (IHO)
of the People

In a GLOBAL Model, humanity ‘works together as a people – for the common good of all’. This intelligent and common sense approach will allow us to solve the world’s problems. To coordinate our global initiatives, we need a professional organisation – an International Humanitarian Organisation of the People.

NEW GLOBAL MODEL

International Humanitarian Organisation (IHO)

Humanitarian Focus

This International Organisation will focus on addressing the global political, economic, humanitarian and social challenges throughout the world, while supporting the needs of all countries and people.

Scientific Excellence

The international scientific community will provide the necessary expertise and tools to solve the global challenges.

Global Operations

GLOBAL Operations Centre

Coordinates International Operations

In a real world example, a Global Operations Centre (simulation above) will coordinate the humanitarian and scientific directives designed to benefit and improve the state of all countries.

ROLES

What is the principal role and responsibility of the IHO in a Global Model?

What are our shared goals?

The IHO will identify the global problems. It will assess the impact of each individual problem, its relationship to other problems, and its global risk to society. Based on the identified problems and risks, the IHO will define a set of shared goals to remediate these problems. Each will be assigned a priority in terms of how urgently the goal needs to be addressed.

Implement Directives to achieve the goals

Once the shared goals have been defined and agreed, global directives will be implemented to address them. These directives will improve the lives of people in all countries, as well as the environmental health of the planet.

IHO

GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY

As the representative organisation of humanity, the IHO is responsible for implementing intelligent global directives to improve all countries and the state of the planet.

One of the key reasons why humanity needs a global organisation to represent its best interests, is simply because Nation States are incapable of working together in a competitive economic system. They inevitably focus on ‘national self-interest’. This immediately places them in ‘conflict with each other’. When trying to resolve major international problems – like climate change – their focus on their own self-interest creates problems which are not being resolved. A NEW Global Model will solve these conflicts of interest between countries as it replaces ‘national self interest’ with the ‘global shared interest’ of all countries.

We need a new politically independent global organisation which can objectively act in the best interests of ALL countries, and be directly accountable to ‘the people’. This needs to be a professional organisation which is fully trusted to make intelligent and sensible decisions which benefit all countries and the good of the planet.

Nation States

NATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY

In a global model, Nation States retain authority at the national level. However, if a national law is in conflict with a humanitarian global directive, the global directive takes precedence.

Show more

While national laws should be respected wherever possible, the simple truth is; nation states have lost the trust of their people.

Over the decades, far too many political decisions have been made for the wrong reasons, whether due to corruption, the influence of political lobbyists, or other self-serving motives. Too many decisions do absolutely nothing to solve the core problems in society. In fact, they actually add to the problems.

For example, international weapon sales. Selling weapons – which are clearly used to kill people, is NOT helping to solve the world’s problems. What justification do governments offer for these decisions? “If we don’t sell weapons, people will lose their jobs.” Or just as insane, “One of our competitors (another country) will sell the weapons instead.” In a competitive world, stupidity (based on self interest) is everywhere!

Competitive aggression also destroys trust between countries.

If humanity is to ever solve its problems, intelligence and common sense must replace ignorance and self-interest.

This is one of the greatest benefits of a global model; it will ensure that we implement intelligent decisions which benefit all countries, instead of all countries making foolish self-centred decisions that negatively impact the world.

HUMAN EXCELLENCE

A Global Model needs to 'bring out the best in us as a people'. As within, so without. As we become more intelligent individuals, we create a more intelligent world.

Independence

REPRESENTING HUMANITY

To truly represent the best interests of humanity, the IHO must be an independent Organisation. It should have no ‘political, national or corporate’ affiliations.

Its purpose is to implement global directives to improve the overall state of the world, for ALL countries and people.

Psychology

POSITIVE GLOBAL PSYCHOLOGY

One of the most profound benefits of a new global model will be the significant improvement in our psychology worldwide.

A world based on ‘global cooperation’ will have an immediate and positive impact on human relations in all countries and across all sectors of society. This will be most evident within the political sector.

Standards

INTEGRITY & VALUES

An Organisation designed to represent humanity needs to ‘bring out the best in us as a people’. It needs to reflect our core values and highest ideals, while manifesting a shared vision of a better world for all.

The IHO can fulfil this role by adopting a global model based on professional standards and independent oversight.

GOVERNANCE

A Global Model requires governance practices which can be trusted.

Transparency

OPEN & TRANSPARENT SYSTEM

The IHO will operate a fully open and transparent system.

All directives will be publicly advertised with clear and concise evidence and/or reasoning for the decisions that are made. When necessary, input and feedback will be requested from relevant sectors and organisations.

Oversight

ACHIEVING OUR BEST

Independent Oversight will report directly to ‘the people’. The Oversight Panel will also ensure that the IHO is maintaining its standards and meeting its objectives.

This open and transparent approach will ensure that there is complete trust between the IHO, nation states and the public.

Accountability

ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE

The IHO will be directly accountable to the people.

The Oversight Panel will provide global progress reports to the public. These reports will highlight the progress being made to remedy the global problems, based on the priority of the global risk factors involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

GLOBAL MODEL

What is a GLOBAL Model?

What is a GLOBAL Model?

A GLOBAL Model is based on humanity ‘working together as a people – for the common good of all’.

This relates to countries and their respective governments working together in global cooperation towards a set of shared goals, which will benefit them all.

Managing this process, is a politically and nationally independent humanitarian organisation of the people.

Why is a GLOBAL Model more intelligent than a National Model?

Why is a GLOBAL Model more intelligent than a National Model?

In a National Model, humanity competes AGAINST itself. Nation states, businesses and individuals are competing against each other – politically and economically, for their own self interest.

As this system literally pits humanity against itself, it is a ‘self-harming’ model which has destroyed countless lives. This aggressive self-centered system leads to endless problems which have plagued humanity for centuries; war and conflict, political aggression between countries, greed, corruption, poverty, extreme wealth inequality, environmental destruction,…well, you know what the problems are. They’re in the news every day!

A GLOBAL Model would put an end to ALL of these problems. It would align the psychology of humanity to the same set of shared goals which equally benefit all countries and people. Cooperation replaces competition. Shared interest replaces self interest.

In a global model, we also utilise technology ‘intelligently’. For example, we will build clean energy cities and communities which will improve the environment, our health, and enhance the overall quality of life for everyone.

The improvements that we make to society globally will also free up our lives from the routine of monotonous jobs, providing us with more time to enjoy life and explore its unlimited possibilities.

How will a GLOBAL Model look to engage ideas and expertise from around the world?

How will a GLOBAL Model look to engage ideas and expertise from around the world?

In a global model, we work together as a people. Part of this process is about engaging the ideas and expertise of individuals and organisations from around the world. Here is an example.

  1. Based on our shared goals as a people, the IHO will create global directives to improve the state of the world for all countries. These directives will utilise any relevant information and/or scientific evidence that it has available.
  2. When a global directive is created, it will be posted publicly for input and review.
  3. If the directive can be improved (through a valid argument and/or evidence), it will be amended accordingly.
  4. When the review period ends, the directive is implemented.

IHO

What is the IHO?

What is the IHO?

For a global model to function effectively, it requires an Organisation to serve, represent and coordinate global directives which will enhance the state of the world for all countries and people. This Organisation needs to make independent decisions which will act in the best interests of all countries and people.

Just like the human body relies on the ‘heart and mind’ to make sensible and intelligent decisions on its behalf, this Organisation will make sensible and intelligent decisions which will be in the shared interests of all countries and people.

The IHO therefore needs to be ‘politically and nationally’ independent. Its decisions should not be influenced by the political or national agenda of any individual country or nation state. Instead, its mandate should be to ‘represent the best interests of humanity and the planet’.

Is the IHO similar to the UN?

Is the IHO similar to the UN?

The IHO represents what the League of Nations and/or United Nations should have been!

The United Nations should have ‘united humanity as a people’ allowing us to effectively work together to create a better world for EVERYONE. It should have transitioned humanity to a more intelligent Global Model which is necessary to end the ‘conflicted interests between national governments’ that are stuck in a state of competitive self-interest. This didn’t happen.

The UN should also be ‘politically independent’. Its focus should be to represent and support the needs of humanity and the planet – NOT political self-interest. After 100 years and more than 100 million deaths from war and conflict in the last century alone, we need to fix the mistakes of the past.

It’s time to work together as a people for the benefit of all.

How does this site relate to a GLOBAL Model and the IHO?

How does this site relate to a GLOBAL Model and the IHO?

As much as is practically possible, this website – which is an evolving working model – attempts to meet a number of objectives.

  1. To educate and inform people about the need for a new Global Model.
  2. To show how a Global Model will phenomenally improve the state of the world.
  3. To highlight how a Global Model can be implemented via an ‘International Humanitarian Organisation of the People’.
  4. To steadily progress towards implementing the IHO as a functional Organisation.

How do we implement a GLOBAL Model?

Implementing a GLOBAL Model to solve the world’s problems is incredibly simple.

It’s a decision. As a people, we just need to support it!
