11 – 15 November 2013, New York
From 11- 15 November 2013, FES New York hosted its eighth annual Fall Academy “How to Make Best Use of UN Capacities” for young international policy analysts. 16 participants from eleven countries and four continents attended discussions about the work of the Security Council and other main UN bodies, financing of the UN, peace and security issues, as well as new concepts for development beyond the Millennium Development Goals. They gained first- hand experience in meetings with UN Secretariat representatives, Member States diplomats and NGO experts. The training provided the participants with the opportunity to obtain in-depth knowledge of the capacities of the UN to deal with policy issues that are also relevant for their work at home.
