The Humanist Party was one of the two major political parties on the Spacer world of Aurora. The Humanist Party believed that all human beings had a right to share in the Galaxy, and adhered to interstellar cooperation. It was the rival of the Globalist Party.

By the year 4724, tensions between the Globalists and the Humanists were extremely high. In Humanist Han Fastolfe's fight with Kelden Amadiro in the form of Elijah Baley's case concerning R. Jander Panell, the real matter at stake was not the death of the robot but the future of the colonisation of the galaxy, as the reputation of either who lost would be lowered enough for the other party to triumph. As expected, Fastolfe's victory in the case led to a Humanist political victory on Aurora, and the Globalists lost most of their power as the Settlers spread out and colonised the Galaxy from Earth.
