UN Studies Capacity Building in Southeast Europe

Miroslav Polzer of the Austrian Science and Research Office in Lubljana participated in the ACUNS Meeting 2010 as a panelist on Regional Perspectives on the UN and Security and held a presentation about UN Studies Capacity Building in Southeast Europe.

After introducing ASO Ljubljana and its past activities in the field of UN Studies Capacity Building in SEE  , Polzer focused on their current project, which is „Building the Knowledge Base for Global Governance and Climate Change Action in SEE".

Faced with global challenges, knowledge management becomes increasingly crucial in particular with regard to the functioning of academic, international communities, such as the UN System. ASO Ljubljana is working on this project since 2008; for the future they are planning to establish, in cooperation with UNSA, a subregional SEE United Nations Studies internet portal, among other initiatives.
