What role should human dignity play in guiding the mission of international institutions? Human dignity consists of the agency of individuals to apply their gifts to thrive, and requires social recognition of each person's inherent value and claim to equal access to opportunity. Contributors examine how traditional and emerging institutions are already advancing human dignity, and then identify strategies to make human dignity more central to the work of global institutions. They explore traditional state-created entities, and explore emergent, hybrid institutions and faith-based organizations. Human Dignity and the Future of Global Institutions concludes with a final section that lays out a path for a cross-cultural dialogue on human dignity that could successfully achieve the transformation of global politics into service of the individual.
