Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The World Service Authority (WSA), founded in 1953[1], is a non-profit organization that educates about and promotes "world citizenship", "world law", and World Government. It has offices in Washington, D.C. and Shanghai, China. It is best known for issuing World Passports.

The WSA was founded by Garry Davis, a former Broadway actor and World War II bomber pilot who renounced his U.S. citizenship in 1948 to live as a "citizen of the world". It was set up to be the administrative agency of the "World Government of World Citizens" which he declared on 4 September 1953. Besides issuing World Passports, the WSA registers applicants as "world citizens", and issues "world citizen" identity documents, such as birth certificates, identity cards and marriage certificates.
