The 138th Assembly of the Inter Parliamentary Union will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, on 24-28 March 2018. The agenda is rich and comprehensive, covering key issues such as strengthening the parliamentary contribution to the global compact for migration, sustaining peace as a vehicle for achieving sustainable development, tackling women’s underrepresentation in politics, engaging the private sector in the development of renewable energy, and building sustainable and resilient societies.
Closely following the Inter Parliamentary Union summit which is ongoing at the United Nation Hq in geneva. The assembly gathers over 16000 members of parliament from all over the world.
The IPU has this year concentrated on the World refugee crisis, Human rights, Conflicts & disasters and Advocating for & recognition of the SOGIE persons (LGBTIQQ+)
The conference is set to close tomorrow Wednesday 28th. However, Parliamentarians from all states of Africa and Arabia have vowed to either protest or get out of the sessions if the 'west' dare table a bill in regard to recognition or promotion of LGBT rights in their homelands.
This is challenging to the LGBT community in the regions & all over the world +generally humanity, We pray for the best from the session tommorow.
