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across a range of issues have made the system of international organizations based on sovereign nation-states outdated.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.
