Product Descriptions

Since the beginning of its academic activities in September 1975, the UN University has grown and matured into a decentralized, global network comprising UNU Centre in Tokyo, a worldwide network of institutes located in 13 UN Member Nation host countries (as of 2008), and liaison offices at United Nations Headquarters (New York) and UNESCO Headquarters (Paris).

UNU is one of the smaller United Nations organizations, and as a voluntarily funded organization depends heavily on support from governments, bilateral and multilateral development assistance agencies, foundations and other public and private sector sources. Over the past decades, the University has increasingly enhanced the nature and impact of its contributions to the UN system and to the international academic community.

The UNU Press is the focal point for the University’s publication programme, with a core mission to disseminate knowledge of high academic quality, reflecting pluralistic approaches to the understanding and solution of the pressing global problems of human survival, development and welfare. UNU Press publishes and distributes print publications and electronic content in English and other major languages to all parts of the world.
