The Humanist International (also known as the International Humanist Party) is a consortium of political parties of the universal humanism (also known as Siloism) ideology, founded in 1989 by over 40 national Humanist Parties.
The five basic principles of Humanist International are:
- The value of human life as the central value, above money and power, etc.
- Equality of all human beings
- Freedom of belief and ideas
- Development and creation of alternative economic models to the current neoliberal one
- Methodology of active non-violence
Humanist International was founded in Florence, Italy, on January 4, 1989, by the approval of foundational documents and statutes by over 40 Humanist Parties from around the world. These foundational documents included the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a declaration of principles, a thesis and a basis for political action.
In December 1989, in Chile, Laura Rodríguez became the first elected representative of any Humanist Party in the world after winning a seat as part of the Concertación coalition, after Augusto Pinochet handed over power.
