Governance & Finance



The Quaker UN Committee Geneva has ten members, five appointed by Friends World Committee for Consultation, four members appointed by Britain Yearly Meeting and one appointed by Quaker Peace & Social Witness Central Committee (QPSW CC) of Britain Yearly Meeting. This Committee sets the priorities for the work, and evaluates and monitors the work, reporting to the two parent bodies once a year. It meets twice a year, which before the Covid-19 pandemic was once in Geneva, once virtually. (The image shows committee members in their last in person meeting in 2019.)
