International relations are deteriorating. Attempts by great powers to undermine the multilateral method, to trade it for power relations, prevent us from building transnational solutions to global problems.
The Parliamentarians for Peace programme (P4P) constitutes a network of legislators from different countries, with various political cultures, from diverse intellectual backgrounds, who stand together with a strong conviction: our world needs political leadership. We cannot lose control of the digital revolution or waste time in the fight against climate change.
These representatives and senators from all around the world are gathered by the Open Diplomacy Institute within the « Normandy for Peace » initiative. Supported by the Normandy Region, this programme brings together international managers to support conflict resolution through mediation, dialogue and international cooperation.
The first group of Parliamentarians for Peace was recruited and accompanied by the Open Diplomacy Institute at a period of crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first « P4P » have published the Peace Policy Platform (3P) in October 2020. This declaration asserts strong principles for collective action and sets forth a list of international political solutions.
The Institute is now recruiting the next group of Parliamentarians for Peace, which will work in network with the first one before gathering at the Normandy World Peace Forum in June 2021.
