About the organization

“Grounded in the Quaker belief that there is that of the divine in every person, QUNO New York seeks a United Nations that addresses key drivers of peace and violence, including the structures and systems that produce exclusion and injustice; that facilitates and supports change through peaceful means; and whose policies and practices reflect a diversity of voices, such that people around the world can safely and peacefully achieve their potential.” QUNO Vision Statement

QUNO’s 2020 Strategic Plan “Quiet Diplomacy at the Frontiers of Peace” articulates a central theme for QUNO’s work, to “expand constituencies of support for sustainable and people-centered strategies for peace among key UN stakeholders”. QUNO will pursue this strategy in the context of UN policies and agendas that relate to building sustainable peace, both over the longer term and in crisis response, while continuing to foster a growing understanding of what lies at the heart of efforts to build a peaceful world.
