QUNO

We are privileged to carry forward the Quaker traditions of patient, quiet diplomacy at the United Nations, working for a more peaceful and just world. The strength of QUNO’s work lies in our long term persistence.

Through perseverance, we have helped to change attitudes, create new understandings, and develop new standards.
