How could a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations be financed?
The United Nations and its various programmes and agencies are funded by combinations of assessed and/or voluntary contributions. If established as a subsidiary body of the UN General Assembly, a Parliamentary Assembly would likely be funded through the assessed UN regular budget. The budget would have to be expanded accordingly. However, other means of funding, including voluntary contributions by member states, should also be considered. In addition, a voluntary trust fund could be established and authorized to accept contributions from other political supporters under clearly defined terms.
