NewsMemorandum of understanding signed between the Academy and UNITAR
In order to develop ties of cooperation and to advance education and training in the area of international law, the Academy and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research agreed to start a new collaboration.
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) was established in 1965 as an autonomous body within the United Nations with the mandate of enhancing the effectiveness of the work of the United Nations and its Member States in the fields of environment, governance, and peace and security, and further on with the aim of supporting the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
UNITAR is making concrete contributions to developing the capacities of tens of thousands of people around the world. UNITAR has built sustainable partnerships acquiring unique expertise and accumulating experience and knowledge to fulfil its mandate. These accomplishments have enabled UNITAR to respond to the growing demand from UN Member States for training for capacity development in the fields of Environment; Peace, Security and Diplomacy; and Governance.
