The book includes compelling case-studies and examples of new constitutions from grassroots initiatives that demonstrate a new paradigm in politics is already emerging. The way forward into the new paradigm will depend on embracing our opportunities to engage in participatory decision-making with all levels of society and following this with actions based on our shared visions and common responsibilities. The spirit of democracy is alive in the hearts and minds of people who want to respond to this evolutionary call of our time. This is the message that emerged from the dialogues and presentations about the new paradigm in politics as reported in this book.
