Your guide to UN and UN documents and reports


The United Nations University (UNU) was established in 1975 as an autonomous academic institution within the UN system. Its headquarters are located in Tokyo.


Dealing with pressing global problems, the United Nations University

  • links the United Nations to the academic world
  • serves as a tink tank for the organization
  • offers opportunities for research and higher education.

Through its system of research centres around the world, research fellows and PhD students from other universities, especially from developing countries, get the opportunity to come and engage in research in their particular areas of study.

The UNU serves as a worldwide network of academic and scientific institutions. The UNU is funded by voluntary contributions.
