About IPU 144

The IPU is the global organization of national parliaments.


IPU began in 1889 as a small group of parliamentarians dedicated to promoting peace through parliamentary diplomacy and dialogue has since grown into a truly global organization of national parliaments. Today, IPU membership inches ever closer to being universal, with 178 Member Parliaments,14 Associate Members, and increasing numbers of parliamentarians from all over the world involved in their work.


The IPU Assemblies—formerly known as Inter-Parliamentary Conferences—are held twice a year either in Geneva or in other cities around the world, with more than 1,200 delegates attending.


At the invitation of the Parliament of the Republic of Indonesia, the 144th Assembly of the IPU and its related meetings will be held in Nusa Dua (Bali International Convention Centre) from 20 to 24 March 2022. It will be the third time for Indonesia to host the IPU Assembly. The list of the previous assemblies can be found in this link.


All IPU statutory bodies, including the Governing Council, Standing Committees, Committees on the Human Rights of Parliamentarians and on Middle East Questions, as well as the Forum of Women Parliamentarians and the Forum of Young MPs, will convene during this Assembly. The General Debate will provide a platform for delegates to deliberate and exchange views on the topic: "Getting to Zero: Mobilizing Parliaments to Act on Climate Change".
