What Is Equitocracy? Award-Winning Attorney Owolabi Salis Explains
According to award-winning attorney and research professor Owolabi M. Salis, fundamental problems require fundamental solutions. The world today is characterized by an ever-growing number of global issues. Where these issues relate to problems with democracy, Salis is championing a process known as equitocracy.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Salis has over three decades of experience in law. With that, he’s an authority on myriad legal topics. He’s also established himself as a go-to source of knowledge as a research professor. As a research professor focused on equitocracy, he conducts much of his work alongside the democracy-building organization Equity Union.
In essence, equitocracy is a form of diversity-based democracy building. However, to fully appreciate the process, it’s necessary to delve further into the topic, starting with a closer look at the platform upon which equitocracy exists.
Diversity-Based Democracy Building
Equitocracy exists on a platform of diversity-based democracy building. The specific type of diversity-based democracy building touted by Salis and a rapidly increasing number of his peers is fundamentally straightforward.
In the most straightforward terms, the process centers around building fair and overarching governance systems. These systems are established by creating equitable, interacting zones in a progressively diverse international community.
Combined equitocracy and diversity-based democracy building form an area of great interest and expertise for New York-based attorney Salis. Equitocracy exists in a field he’s researched extensively over many years in order to become a subject authority.
How Equitocracy Works
With its roots firmly in diversity-based democracy building, equitocracy works, first and foremost, to mitigate conflict and promote positive conduct.
Promoting Positive Conduct
Anywhere in the world, equitocracy’s goal is to address one or more fundamental problems by promoting positive community conduct. Research professor Owolabi Salis and other experts tout equitocracy as a solution to an ever-growing array of increasingly serious issues globally.
The hope is that equitocracy and diversity-based democracy building can redefine autonomy at governmental levels in countries worldwide. At the same time, it’s also proposed that governments can utilize equitocracy to achieve effective equity formation from the ground up.
Effective Equity Formation
In the context of equitocracy, effective equity formation results from objective evaluation in several areas. An excellent diversity-focused example is the evaluation of political candidates. Via equitocracy, this evaluation seeks to address candidates’ abilities directly. Furthermore, evaluation is undertaken exclusively by electorates.
Salis says that, in today’s world, equitocracy and diversity-based democracy building are more important considerations than ever before. That’s as the world continues to succumb to ever-greater and more apparent regional, national, and international divisions.
Salis’s belief in the massive potential of equitocracy rests on the back of extensive research over many years. He has extensively studied the diversity-based democracy-building process and the prevailing problems requiring equitocracy as a solution.
His research has focused on topics including, but not limited to, opinions and beliefs on general equity laws, fair governance systems, the determination of local communities, and sentiments surrounding existing democracies. The research professor’s findings are undoubtedly impressive and include various highly significant discoveries.
Among these discoveries are several that have come to light for the first time only as a direct result of Salis’s work. His tireless research also suggests beyond doubt that equitocracy is intrinsically balanced at its core. As such, there’s evidence to support the growing belief that equitocracy represents a fundamentally fair governance system for future generations.
Equitocracy Model Design
Thanks to Salis’s ongoing efforts, equitocracy now exists as a proprietary model design. The design comes courtesy of the award-winning attorney’s successful Brooklyn-based law firm. A painstakingly tailored proprietary model designed for worldwide use, it starts with steps to support improved democracy-building operations born out of community cooperation.
Easily modified, the model, in its most straightforward guise, culminates in creating a true sense of belonging for all. Governments and qualifying educational institutions can apply directly to Salis and his team for a comprehensive outline of the latest version of the model design.
