History

1983, London (UK), by Dr Jeffrey J Segall and Dr Harry H Lerner, as a conference series with the title Conferences for a More Democratic United Nations. Current title adopted 25-27 Nov 1993, New York NY (USA). Incorporated U-XF0385 - International Network for a UN Second Assembly (INFUSA), set up Mar 1983, London, by U-XD1249 - Medical Association for the Prevention of War, UK (MAPW). Defunct as of 2010.

Aims

Establish an expert group to study and investigate the proposal for a popular assembly subsidiary to the UN General Assembly under Article 22 of the UN Charter. This Second Assembly would represent the peoples of the world as members of civil society and the species that dominates Planet Earth; it would thus supplement the General Assembly which represents peoples as citizens of sovereign member states. As a first step towards a UN 'second assembly', support proposals of the Commission on Global Governance for an annual Forum of Civil Society linked with UN General Assembly sessions.
