“Globally responsible" essentially means “in the broad global public interest.”

Political thought involves a longstanding tradition of trying to understand motivation and goals in the public realm, generally from the viewpoint of public interest. Public policy, on the other hand, represents a more recent tradition which primarily points to the development of goals and ways of meeting them, again, broadly speaking, from a public interest viewpoint.

Globally responsible political thought and public policy (GRPT/PP) builds upon prior attempts to develop norms applicable among various nations such as:

▪ Trying to control and insofar as possible end war
▪ Trying to control cross-border pollution
▪ Ending slavery
▪ Ending colonialism
▪ Advancing human rights, including for sure, the rights of women and children
