Thank you for your interest in our Existential Risk and Democracy program. The world as we know it changed too quickly, and our website couldn’t keep up! We are reviewing our programs to reflect this reality. We do, however, remain more committed than ever to the unity of mankind through federal world government. International developments have only confirmed the necessity for more global integration and democratic reform.

In the meantime, here are both in-house and external sources for further reading on the topic of existential and catastrophic risk:
