The All‐Party Parliamentary Group on the United Nations (UN APPG) is a cross‐party group supporting the aims and ideals of the United Nations. Our primary objective is to raise awareness among MPs and Peers – about the UN; about its myriad contributions across the areas of peace and security, development and human rights; about the scope of international law and its relevance to the UK; and, crucially, about the applicability of the UN to the people who make up the British electorate.
In partnership with the UN APPG officers, UNA-UK sets out the strategic plan for the Group for the each parliamentary session and reports back on the activity of the Group to its members.
The UN APPG meets six to eight or times a year to provide a platform for high‐level international speakers. Recent speakers have included: Sir Mark Lyall Grant (UK Permanent Representative to the UN); Dr Edward Luck (Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on the Responsibility to Protect); Baroness Williams of Crosby; Ambassador Lakhdar Brahimi (former Foreign Minister of Algeria, former UN envoy and member of The Elders); Margot Wallström (Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict); and Dr Francis Deng, (UN Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide).
The United Nations Association of the UK (UNA‐UK) acts as the secretariat for the UN APPG. UNA-UK is an independent charity that provides information and analysis on the work of the UN.
