Campaign for a UN Parliamentary Assembly

WFMC participates actively in the Campaign for the Establishment of a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations (UNPA). A UNPA would strengthen the voice of the citizens in the United Nations and international politics. Our support for a UN Parliamentary Assembly is rooted in our  organization’s dedication to the principles of democracy and the rule of law. In an era of globalization, we believe that democratic governance principles should also be observed and applied at the international level. Establishing a UNPA offers a pragmatic, gradual approach to this important global governance imperative.
