Cooperating with the United Nations and specialized agencies: Statements, reports and resolutions

Since 2002, when the IPU became a Permanent Observer to the United Nations General Assembly, IPU representatives have regularly addressed sessions of the General Assembly and its subsidiary organs, as well as major United Nations conferences and high-level events. Every two years, the UN Secretary-General issues a Report and the UN General Assembly adopts a Resolution on interaction between the UN, parliaments and the IPU. The IPU also distributes its official documents (i.e., resolutions and declarations) in the General Assembly, which has enabled it to bring a parliamentary dimension to the discussions of the United Nations. (See also Engaging with the United Nations General Assembly.)
