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.

As multilateralism and international solidarity are more than ever under threat, it is time to give a new democratic breath to global institutions. The United Nations organization must open up to representatives directly elected by the people in order to get the legitimacy necessary to act in the name of humanity's general interest. We need to move forward quickly with essential reforms in support of environmental protection, the fight against poverty or international trade regulation. The best way to ensure this is to create a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly. It would be complementary to the General Assembly which brings together the governments representing the interests of the states. As a progressive, I support this goal of democratic and not only economic globalization, and therefore I give my full support to the international campaign for the creation of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly.
