The Assyrian Universal Alliance is an international alliance made up of different sectors of the Assyrian federations and organisations throughout the world.

In 1968, the Assyrian Universal Alliance was created as a worldwide organisation seeking to spread, uphold and enhance the Assyrian name in the world, to secure the human rights of the Assyrian people in their homeland and to attain an autonomous state in the Assyrian ancestral homeland. In 1991, the Assyrian Universal Alliance became a Member of the UNPO, Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization.
