The mission of GPF is to increase citizen participation in the creation of global policies by building a strong movement of nongovernmental organizations, supporting their influence on the work of the UN Security Council, and providing public opinion with accurate information. To achieve its goals, GPF organizes meetings and provides the UN with information and analyses of public life. GPF has its headquarters in New York.
The work of GPF concentrates on peace and international security issues, UN economic and social policies, respect for human rights, international justice, and current global policy issues.
The basic means of reaching public opinion is the GPF website, which includes information about all of the organization's activities. The website offers many publications and informative materials on current global policy issues and UN activities, as well as many links.
