Areas of Work

QUNO’s peace and disarmament work in Geneva focuses on encouraging a more holistic and integrated approach to preventing destructive conflict and building peace at the international and local level.

QUNO views climate change as an environmental, political and economic challenge that interconnects with its work on peace and justice issues. 

We work to strengthen the promotion and protection of human rights through the United Nations system, with particular reference to the interface between human rights and armed conflicts, and the protection of refugees. 

QUNO strives to foster economic systems that deliver prosperity for all. This means that those economic systems improve livelihoods, strengthen resilience, and ensure just transitions to sustainability for the most vulnerable stakeholders.
