Lesson 11:

Landmark Declarations & Observances

Now you are really starting to get into the detail of the UN. We cover a lot in this lesson, from Landmark documents to thinking about how the Security Council now functions quite differently in terms of expanded authority and scope since the end of the cold war.
The we take a look at simple and yet very useful instruments the UN produces in terms of its International Days, Weeks, Years and Decades that give you additional ways to bring attention to bear on issues that your NGO works on that leverages the weight of the UN! Enjoy.
