Peter Monien

Peter Monien is a ‘political refugee’ from Germany who lives in Switzerland. He has become increasingly disenchanted with what politicians are deciding in the name of the people and are doing with public funds, mostly unknown to the electorates they pretend to represent. After the 2007 financial crisis (and the subsequent lack of accountability at every economic and political level), he has lost faith in mainstream politics.

In August 2018, Peter decided to step forward and develop a new, truly democratic counterproposal to the current entrenched political system.

The results of his research and proposal for a new kind of grassroots democratic political party, the ‘Proxy Party,’ can be found in his book Upgrading Democracy and this book Achieving True Democracy.
