Refers to the people who participate in the proposals of New Humanism. These proposals are outlined in broad terms in the Statement of the H.M. (Humanist Statement). The H.M. is not itself an institution, though it has given rise to a wide range of groups and organizations. The H.M. does not seek to establish a hegemony of the many existing humanist and humanitarian movements (humanitarianism), and clearly differentiates itself from all of them. It establishes close working relationships with all progressive groups on the basis of criteria of non-discrimination, reciprocity and the convergence of diversity.
