From the Campaign
Jo Leinen MEP
On Tuesday, 18 February, the Parliamentary Forum on “EU Parliaments in global governance”, hosted by the European Parliament’s Vice-Presidents Miguel Angel Martínez and Othmar Karas in Brussels, focused on the “role of parliamentarism in an increasingly connected world” and the question whether “current forms of political representation are adequate to address today’s international challenges.”
The Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Advisory Group of the Campaign for a UN Parliamentary Assembly, European lawmaker Jo Leinen, introduced the campaign and its proposal at the afternoon session of the conference that was devoted to global parliamentary initiatives.
