“The historic advancements in the post-cold war, post-apartheid period, in that brief decade of leadership best exemplified by world leaders like Nelson Mandela – these historic advances in democracy, justice, human rights, & the rule of law are under severe attack.”
– William R. Pace, Executive Director
In 2014 and 2015, the momentum of the human rights movement – to which the World Federalist Movement - Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP) has been integral – came under attack, along with the human rights institutions that correspond with the movement and its advocates.
To reflect the fight against these forces, the theme of WFM-IGP’s 2014/15 Annual Report is “Building Capacities for Protection, Prevention and Peace,” and emphasizes the organization’s refusal to look backwards. WFM-IGP views civil society – the human rights activists, local and regional organization leaders, academics, legal practitioners, journalists and more, and of which our membership and partners are comprised – as an engine for protection, prevention and peace in the context of the world’s gravest crimes.
