Abizadeh, S. “Will Globalization Lead to a World Commonwealth?”. The Journal of Bahá’í Studies, vol. 15, no. 1-4, Dec. 2005, pp. 41-71, doi:10.31581/jbs-15.1-4.2(2005).


This paper draws from modern economic theory, the recent surge of interest in globalization, stronger global interconnectedness, and expanded cooperation among nation states to discuss their impact on world governance. It attempts to explain how emerging international crises, such as global epidemics, when combined with the fundamental principles of unity and social justice prescribed in the writings of the Bahá’í Faith, are impelling the world toward the formation of a world commonwealth.
