General briefing for new delegates on the work of the Sixty-Ninth Session of the General Assembly
11-12 September 2014
In mid-September, hundreds of diplomats attend the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, the Organization’s main deliberative body. A large proportion of them comes from the capitals and may not be sufficiently familiar with the United Nations. Before taking up their assignments, many of them feel the need for a short but very intensive course on the functions of the General Assembly and its Main Committees. The general briefing, which attracts hundreds of participants, and the special briefings on the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Committees aim at providing such information to new delegates to the General Assembly.
This briefing will take place in the ECOSOC Chamber (CB) on 11 and 12 September 2014 from 10:00-18:00.
Please register HERE by the 10 of September 2014
