The UNPA Model (MUNPA) is based on three clearly defined pedagogical stages.
WHO WE ARE
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 advocate for 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 a direct and influential role in global policy.
Starting as a consultative body, the rights and powers of the UNPA could expand over time as its democratic legitimacy increases. The Assembly will act as a watchdog independent of the UN system and as a democratic reflection of the diversity of world opinion.
In short, our aim is for the UN to evolve into a viable democratic and legislative body.
The creation of a UN Parliamentary Assembly is supported by a broad range of individuals and institutions from more than 150 countries.
Individual supporters include politicians, former UN officials, distinguished scholars, cultural innovators, representatives of civil society organizations, and many committed citizens from all walks of life.
