Stanford University Press

This chapter presents a detailed and explicit short-term reform package to help protect traditional freedoms in our new world. These reforms are (1) strengthening national constitutional institutions for democratizing global policies; (2) extending national bills of rights to apply extraterritorially, giving priority to the international flow of information and ideas; (3) creating bills of rights for international organizations, beginning with administrative procedure rights; (4) developing interparliamentary cooperation among democracies; (5) creating an international organization watch-dog agency; and (6) creating a global constitutional culture.

Keywords:   freedom, human rights, national institutions, bill of rights, extraterritoriality, international organizations, interparliamentary cooperation, constitutional culture
