 The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) has a worldwide reach. From 7 to 9 September 2016, representatives of three regions—Europe, Eurasia, the Middle East and North Africa—will gather in London to develop the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP). Featuring 30 parliamentarians among 140 participants coming to London from over 40 nations, the conference will enable a genuine dialogue from nations rich and poor, from Christian, Muslim and Jewish as well as many other cultural and religious perspectives. This follows the pattern of inter-regional conferences held this year in Nepal, Burkina Faso and South Korea.
