NGOs in Italy call for more democratic UN

10. September 2005

In Perugia, Italy, more than 200 representatives of people's movements, trade unions, national and international networks, local authorities, universities and research centres gathered to discuss the reform of the United Nations. The final resolution includes the call to establish a parliamentary assembly composed of representatives from national and regional parliaments. Its goal would be to prepare the process for a United Nations parliament elected by citizens from all member states, for the democratisation and strengthening of the UN system.
