The ALEC International Relations Task Force maintains relationships with legislators across the globe. Although currently most of our international members are from the European Union, we are seeking to expand our reach to the leaders in emerging economies who are aligned with the Jeffersonian principles of limited government and free markets.

The Case for Expanding ALEC’s Role in International Affairs
Source: ALEC Insider - July 2008
The common conservative mistrust of the United Nations is well-known. While there are many reservations one may have regarding the organization, two of the strongest and most often-cited are these: First, at its core, the UN exists fundamentally to forfeit the sovereignty of nations in favor of the consensus of the international community. The notion of handing U.S. sovereignty off to any other power is anathema to many of us, and rightly so. Second, the UN has demonstrated that it is often unable to efficiently implement the powers and regulations it has pursued. Even if one is concerned with the purpose of the organization, there is cause for even greater concern regarding whether the UN is capable of carrying out that purpose well and wisely.
This is why ALEC aims to apply for membership as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in consultative status with the UN. If successful, our voice would be added to a chorus of over 3,000 organizations, including the AARP, the American Psychological Association, Lawyers Without Borders, and the Salvation Army. Achieving consultative status with the UN would give ALEC a new and unique edge in its mission to defend itself and its clients against governments, policies, and global trends that continue to challenge our individual liberties and free market interests.
ALEC will gain the ability to craft an international agenda, publicly repudiate misinformation, and begin identifying and connecting with allies we have not yet even met. While both getting our message across and ensuring that it does not fall on deaf ears are labor-intensive tasks, both are also critical to the survival and expansion of our international outreach. We should jump at every opportunity to build new bridges. The future of Jeffersonian ideals requires a new medium and new ways of thinking about how to build relationships and communicate our message. The opportunities presented, and the benefits gained, by achieving consultative status imposes on ALEC the obligation to begin considering a dramatic expansion of our role in the international sphere.
