138th Assembly








The 138th Assembly of the IPU took place in Geneva, Switzerland, on 24-28 March 2018. The agenda was 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. 

The resolutions adopted by the Assembly (including the Emergency item) and the Geneva declaration on migration can be accessed on the Outcomes page.
