The working group’s vision is to promote the formation of an interdisciplinary, UN-focused field of studies.

Second, we aim to set in motion a process of institutionalization of the next generation of UN Studies
In the long run, UNSA considers an integrated education program vital to provide for a teaching framework for latest interdisciplinary research findings.Developing interdisciplinary curricula is, however, costly in terms of time and engagement, so for UN Studies to succeed, UNSA aims to raise public awareness about the importance of such a field of study.
Bill Miller, for example, moderates face-to-face interviews with UN officials on TV. See for example the interview with Bettina Luescher, the UN World Food Program Spokesman:
