Geographical remit: 


The One World Trust is an independent charity that promotes global governance which is accountable and effective for all. 

We conduct research, develop recommendations and advocate for reform to make policy and decision-making processes in global governance more accountable to the people they affect now and in the future, and to ensure that international laws are strengthened and applied equally to all.  

To achieve this we develop practical tools and recommendations in support of organisational reform, identifying gaps in the accountability of governance systems, and highlighting opportunities for cross-sector learning.  

Key to the effectiveness of our research and advocacy in all our strategic areas is the objectivity of our findings, and the constructive engagement with those whose efforts for reform we would like to support, including leaders, senior decision- and policy-makers and opinion-formers in global organisations, parliaments and governments, civil society organisations, and the media.


We seek to realise the wider purpose of the organisation as described above with research and the provision of services focusing on accountability, equity and justice in global governance.

One World Trust currently has three programme areas.   It is promoting the benefits of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly as part of the "We the Peoples" campaign.  It is researching and campaigning in relation to the Global Governance of Artificial Intelligence.  And it is engaged in the field of sustainable development, currently acting as the fiscal host of Action for Sustainable Development, a global platform supporting civil action for the delivery of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
