Interparliamentary Union The Interparliamentary Union (UIP), founded on 30 June 1889 by Frédéric Passy and William Randal Cremer, is the international organization of parliaments. It is the only organization that represents the legislative branch of Governments on a world scale. Unlike other international organizations, it is not an Intergovernmental Organization but an institution for the promotion of cooperation between parliaments. It works under the United Nations system, and its fundamental purpose is to obtain peace, cooperation between peoples and the consolidation of representative institutions through political dialogue. It is regarded as the pioneering international political organization, with 178 affiliated national parliaments and 12 associated regional parliamentary assemblies. Today, the IPU is the main parliamentary interlocutor of the United Nations and brings the voice of parliaments to the decision-making processes of the United Nations, regularly presenting its resolutions in the General Assembly, making declarations, participating in debates and organizing parliamentary meetings on the themes main on the UN agenda. In 2002, the United Nations assigned it permanent observer status, as a result of recognition of the important role it plays. INSTITUTIONAL COMMUNICATION SERVICES AND PRESS, ON JANUARY 27, 20
