Abstract: In times of widespread dissatisfaction with the management of the international system, the United Nations is likely to become the main target of criticism. By and large, it has failed to deliver on the promises made in the wake of World War II, and it does not show any convincing sign of recovery. For those who argue that it has been too ambitious, the solution is quite straightforward: less international organisation and, of course, no supranational governance. Others, who may deplore the fact that the UN is fundamentally unable to bring about a genuine “uniting of nations”, could be tempted to look elsewhere for inspiration. John McClintock is a writer who is definitely looking for more supranationalism. And he has no need to look too far away from home: the experience of the European Union, he argues, can be used to create a new World Community that would help nations solve some of their most pressing issues.
