History

For almost a century The IU has campaigned for governments to address the root causes of poverty and war.

Implementing surface solutions cannot solve the root problems that challenge the  world. Our members campaign in their countries for changes in the laws and public policy that lock poverty and conflict into the market economy.

To achieve this we are co-ordinating a renewed global consensus to understand the true meaning of human rights.

The IU is leading an initiative to change the 1948 United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
