WFMC participates actively in the Campaign for the Establishment of a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations (UNPA).
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across a range of issues have made the system of international organizations based on sovereign nation-states outdated.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.
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.)
2) Write or email your MP and ask them to endorse the international Appeal for a UNPA.
Please send a copy of the appeal along with a personalized letter. A sample letter is available.
