BACKGROUNDER:

In times of great international crisis when events transform the world in a way beyond the capacity of response by individual states or even groups of states global opinion has focused on how we can improve our international institutions and create new mechanisms for co-operation in the interests of humanity as a whole.

This is not mere altruism but a practical desire to ensure our survival and prosperity in a spirit of partnership while still maintaining fruitful competition and a recognition that national advancement requires a degree of co-operation on trade, climate change and the environment, maintenance of peace and fundamental values.

Parliamentarians have so often taken the lead and we must now harness that power in the current pandemic knowing that it will not be the last time that the global community is affected by overwhelming challenges.

Our seminar further develops the work of IAPP and seeks ways forward.

Universal Peace Federation as a global NGO in General Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, promotes a world of interdependence, mutual prosperity centred on universal values.

Acknowledging our interdependence, how can we prevent similar crises that threaten our mutual prosperity, from developing in future?

We want to consider how we can emerge from this crisis with enhanced multi-lateral partnerships and more effective global governance structures, in line with these values?

We will include Parliamentarians and other figures from other nations to add their wisdom.
