This paper looks into the relationship between the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the proposed United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA). It outlines their characteristics and provides an assessment of similarities and differences with special consideration of the IPU’s collaboration with the UN and its capacity to address the UN’s democratic deficit.
