African Parliamentary Alliance for UN Reforms
 
What We Do

What We Do

  1. Give Parliamentary impetus to the work of the African Union Committee of Ten (C-10) to build the consensus required for Africa to demand its rightful place on the global stage
  2. Raise the visibility and legitimacy of the Ezulwini Consensus and Sirte Declaration as a common Human Rights standard of achievement for the peoples of Africa, and as the best means of addressing the historical injustice of Africa's under-representation in the non-permanent category and the non-representation in the UN Security Council.
  3. Ensure the Parliaments of Africa remain united, work together and speak with one voice in pushing the African Common Position as enunciated by the Ezulwini Consensus and the Sirte Declaration - for Africa to have at least two permanent seats in the UN Security Council with Veto power, push for Regional representation as opposed to individual Member States admission to the Permanent category and resist the creation of a third category of membership of the Security Council (not exclusively).
  4. Urge African Parliaments to defend, promote and advocate the Ezulwini Consensus and the Sirte Declaration on all aspects of the UN Security Council reform process and ensure their governments resist the temptation and efforts by some UN Member States and interest groups to divide and distract Africa from its Common Position
  5. Organize Africa solidarity campaigns on UN reforms as a fierce urgency of the moment, and in ways that would get the African Common Position on top of the UN agenda.
