About Us

The New York Office of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research fills a niche in the United Nations system by offering training programmes specially tailored to the work of the United Nations in New York.

Each year, the New York Office trains just under 2,000 diplomats in a wide range of programmes. For many diplomats, being posted to United Nations Headquarters is their most daunting and challenging professional assignment. UNITAR provides guidance through seminars, workshops and other training opportunities that fall under three broad categories:

  1. Courses on the United Nations system and its functioning, including briefings for new delegates on the General Assembly and its Main Committees, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the topic of UN reform; a briefing for new members of the Security Council; as well as workshops on UN elections and documentation.
  2. Seminars on international law and policy, including on challenges and developments in the fields of ocean affairs and law of the sea, treaty law, international migration and development, international trade, environmental governance, and peace and justice issues.
  3. Workshops on diplomatic skills strengthening, including a series of workshops on negotiation skills; training in public speaking and in the drafting of resolutions..
