Parliamentary work spotlight
UNA-UK’s Executive Director gave evidence to the International Development Committee in the House of Commons on sexual exploitation and abuse in UN peacekeeping.

Campaign highlight
The local advocacy work on the situation in Yemen continues. Over 30 MPs have been urged to call on the UK Government to prioritise peace in Yemen.

UN chief for human rights
The UN has issued a formal call for nominations for one of the most important jobs in the world: the UN chief for human rights. As the UN's principal human rights official, she or he is tasked with promoting and protecting all human rights for everyone, everywhere.

Mission Justice

The UN mission in Congo (MONUSCO) is the largest and most complex of all the UN’s peacekeeping operations. The Mission has been working to prevent Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, a problem that threatens to overshadow the UN’s vital role in preventing a return to conflict and promoting a stable, safer Congo. Sexual harassment and abuse takes place wherever there is a lack of accountability. That is the message of our Mission Justice campaign:

Sustainable Development Goals: Delivering Change

This publication sets out what steps have been taken to further the UN's new global development agenda, which will run until 2030.
This report is the fifth in a series of UNA-UK publications on the post-2015 development agenda. This report looks at how the Goals have been implemented over the first part of the 15-year agenda. It equips policy-makers, practitioners and interested observers with insights on how to fully implement the Goals, particularly for the world’s most vulnerable people.

Take action for refugees

  • Refugees: Preparing for Winter
  • UNA-UK is calling on its members and supporters to take action for refugees by participating in Refugee Week's Simple Acts campaign. We believe that if all our supporters commit to just one of these simple acts, it will go a long way towards challenging the stereotypes of refugees that persist in the UK.
