The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) is the global organisation of national parliaments. Its origins date back to 1889 when it set up as the first multilateral political organization in the world, encouraging cooperation and dialogue between all nations. IPU helps build strong parliaments and defends human rights, peacebuilding, sustainability and gender equality.
