About the Initiative
The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) regularly facilitates United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Election Debates and Briefings for Member States running for a non-permanent seat on the UNSC, as well as UNSC Exit Briefings for departing members, in order to strengthen transparency around all UNSC processes.
Following the success of these UNSC Election Debates, WFUNA began facilitating monthly Civil Society Dialogues with the rotating Presidents of the UNSC. These monthly dialogues allow for the Presidents of the UNSC to brief civil society organizations on their monthly Programme of Work, key priorities and challenges ahead, as well as interact with CSOs on shared areas of interest.
