1) "World Federalist Manifesto. Guide to Political Globalization
The book offers the reader a global and unitary vision of international organizations, giving insights on the inner mechanisms of the United Nations and a creative and constructive approach to the phenomenon of globalization. The book encompasses all social sciences, examining international issues by a technical prospective, analyzing the economic, political, financial and legal elements of globalization and offering solutions to international problems. The author focuses on the political aspects of globalization, examining the application of a confederal political model at world level while reviewing the historical background of world federalism. The author presents a model of world confederation divided in international legislative, executive, judicial and financial branches. The authority of the world government is reparted with the Member States, in a way that both are sovereign within their respective sphere of competence. The world confederation, as envisioned by the author in the book, would not supersede the authority of the State governments but complement it, as both the States and the world authority would have power within their sphere of competence; the book presents a political globalization where the economic balances of world nations are preserved at international level. The World Federalist Manifesto constitutes an important contribution to the progress of humanity and is directed to all people directly or indirectly involved in globalization.
2) "United Nations Reorganization. The Unification of the UN System"
The book deals with the reform of the United Nations, introducing the idea of a unification of the UN system. The author proposes the creation of a voting system proportional to the level of contribution, appliable to all the UN specialized agencies, would allow the central executive body (for example, the Secretariat) to draw up a budget plan, which would allocate the international contributions among the different specialized agencies. The book proposes the unification of the specialized agencies under one single budget, and a single voting system; they would chage their juridical nature from separated agencies to International Ministries or International Departments: becoming internal divisions of the United Nations, their general policy would be directed by the Secretary General.
3) "The Reform of the Budget and the Administration of the United Nations. The Balanced Contribution Theory and the Introduction of an Income-Based Contribution System to the International Organizations"
The book analyzes the main current issues of the international organizations: it examines the impact of United Nations contributions on nations’ budget and tax rates, the economic cost of the fragmentation of the United Nations system in different specialized agencies and the risk of stall of the Security Council. The result of the analysis empirically demonstrates the adverse effects of international contributions on national budgets, due to the lack of balance between national income and the criteria of nations’ contribution to the UN, the WTO, the World Bank Group and the IMF. The book shows the benefits of a greater voting power of developed countries, like the United States, in international organizations through the adoption of an income-based contribution system which balances nations’ voting power with the level of Member States’ national income.
