Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Global Ethics
The coalition was established in order to achieve global peace and reconciliation in all areas of conflict, in all societies and nations, by promoting the implementation of the UN resolutions on culture and peace.
The coalition will serve as a milestone and model to achieve peace in areas of conflict and in all societies and nations. It is by giving these sectors a voice in the framework of the peace process that we can hope to find a solution to continuing conflicts in the world, which have eluded all efforts thus far.
The Coalition aims to apply this model for all areas of conflict around the globe.
