In 2017, as we set out on a new strategic cycle, our objective was “the advancement of democratic values, the rule of law and strong, representative institutions, and the promotion of gender equality and human rights.” Five years on, what impact have we had? What difference has the IPU made? And can we claim to have had a lasting and positive impact on people’s lives?

This report describes some of our most significant results in the eight strategic objectives set by the IPU’s Member Parliaments five years ago.
