Pera Wells

Former Secretary-General of the World Federation of United Nations Associations

Pera Wells is a former Australian diplomat whose postings to Africa, the United Nations in New York, the Commonwealth Secretariat in London and to India inspired her to think deeply about how people in Australia, living in a multicultural, ethnically diversified, essentially egalitarian, democratic country on one continent, could help to start a conversation about the possibility of creating a global parliament. Her last appointment was as the Secretary-General of the World Federation of United Nations Associations, so she brings to the Association the hands-on experience of running a global civil society organization as well as a sense of pragmatic idealism about the future possibilities for democratic and inclusive global governance. She is the founder and Director of the Model Global Parliament program.
