World Federalists support the application of the principles of federalism to world affairs, in order that global governance becomes more equitable, just and democratically accountable.

You can help!

This month's Take Action alert suggests how you can support:
  • Global democracy! Encourage your MP to endorse the Appeal for a UN Parliamentary Assembly

Has your MP endorsed the Appeal for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly?

Globalization, information technologies and the need for improvements to global governance across a range of issues have made the system of international organizations based on sovereign nation-states outdated. How can we address the global democratic deficit?

Wide cross-sections of the public do not feel sufficiently represented by their government in international institutions and negotiation processes.

The basic purpose of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly is to address this democracy deficit by including citizens in global decision-making through elected officials and thus provide a more representative voice of global public opinion.

WFMC participates actively in the Campaign for the Establishment of a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations (UNPA). Our support for a UNPA is rooted in our  organization’s dedication to the principles of democracy and the rule of law.


Appeal for the establishment of a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations

The text of the appeal.

Establishing a UN Parliamentary Assembly:  the Basics

An overview document explaining the details of how a UNPA could be established, including context, purpose, legal scope and so on.

What you can do

Contact your Member of Parliament or the senators from your province and urge them to endorse the international Appeal for a UNPA.

1) See if your MP or Senators from your province have already signed.

(The Parliament of Canada website allows you to search MPs by postal code and Senators by province if you want to identify a particular MP or senator to write to.)
