Campaign for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly

Who we are

The Campaign for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly is a global network of parliamentarians, non-governmental organizations, scholars, and dedicated citizens that advocates democratic representation of the world's citizens at the United Nations. A United Nations Parliamentary Assembly, UNPA, for the first time would give elected citizen representatives, not only states, a direct and influential role in global policy.

Statement

It appears only natural that the UN subscribes to the democratic principles it has so far stood to advocate, both in spirit and form. With a world parliament at the helm of the UN, the real benefits of a truly democratically structured institution can be realized for all member states, big or small, through the peoples’ mandated representatives directly. It is time for a UN Parliamentary Assembly.
