The Mondialist highlights the publication of the Democracy Without Borders book A United Nations Parliamentary Assembly in a German-language edition for the first time, writing that the policy briefing “is currently the most up-to-date scientific presentation of the perspectives of a further developed organization of the United Nations, as an impetus and guarantor for a democratic world.”

In several instances, delegations diverged sharply over competing drafts or language that did not represent the views of all members, resulting in the rejection of seven proposed texts.”

On January 10, Young World Federalists hosted a one-hour livestream discussion on “Federalism in Europe & the World,” which can be watched on YouTube:
