Abstract

Our dear friend and colleague Elisabeth Mann Borgese was in her time a person of many parts: musician, composer, playwright, short-story writer, journalist and editor, animal lover, visionary, devoted wife and mother, a strong advocate of intergenerational thinking and activities and a renowned citizen of the world. Her ideas on ocean governance were formed at the University of Chi- cago between 1939 and 1952, where she was engaged in the writing of a book called City of Man, an attempt to envision the kind of society that needed to be built after the Second World War. She edited a monthly magazine called Common Cause, and participated in the drafting of a World Constitution. Published in 1948, the constitution aimed at promoting national and international justice. Already we see Elisabeth taking a maximalist position, trying to create a model for a world government with very wide powers, far beyond the proposals of the minimalists, who spoke mainly of disarmament, security, and the market economy. She was calling for more than just ban- ning the bomb; she wanted social and economic change as the basis of real peace. While her proposals may have been utopian in 1948 they are far
