Overview and metadata sections

The Inter-Parliamentary Union was organized in 1889 by Randal Cremer (England) and Frédéric Passy (France) as an association of members of the national legislative bodies of the world. It was established to secure cooperation of countries to work toward peace by means of a universal organization of nations; initially for individual parliamentarians, but since transformed into an international organization of the parliaments of sovereign states. By 1921 it was headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, with over one hundred national parliaments as members.

Includes materials about the IPU and its annual conferences, and publications; and on the Committee on Economic and Social Questions, 1946.

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is not the official repository for the records of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
