The earliest work on a “Constitution for the World” was first published in 1965 by the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara CA.

“The Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara, California was an influential think tank from 1959 to 1977. Its influence waned thereafter and it closed in 1987. It held discussions on subjects it hoped would influence public deliberation. It attained some controversy with its conference of student radical leaders in 1967, and with a suggested new U.S. Constitution proposed by Fellow Rexford G. Tugwell.” (Wikipedia)

Preamble:

“The people of the earth having agreed

  • that the advancement of man in spiritual excellence and physical welfare is the common goal of mankind;
  • that universal peace is the prerequisite for the pursuit of that goal;
  • that justice in turn is the prerequisite of peace, and peace and justice stand or fall together;
  • that iniquity and war inseparably spring from the competitive anarchy of the national states;
  • that therefore the age of nations must end, and the era of humanity begin;

The governments of the nations have decided to order their separate sovereignties in one government of justice, to which they surrender their arms;

And to establish, as they do establish, this Constitution as the covenant and fundamental law of the Federal Republics of the World.”
