Strategic objectives

The IPU’s five interconnected Strategic Objectives are designed to deepen the IPU’s impact. Objectives 1-3 emphasize strong democratic parliaments; Objective 4 focuses on global parliamentary action and interaction; and Objective 5 strengthens the IPU as a whole.

Parliamentary ecosystems for democracy, for everyone

The IPU helps parliaments and MPs to exercise their mandate effectively and freely as well as to scrutinize governmental action.

The IPU encourages parliaments to be representative of all society, especially women, young people and marginalized populations.

The IPU helps parliaments harness the potential of new technology to become more resilient and forward-looking institutions.

The IPU connects Member Parliaments to each other and serves as a global focal point for parliamentary dialogue and action.

The IPU aims to reinforce a culture of trust and mutual accountability on all levels.
