We are pleased to announce the publication of the QUNO Review 2011.
This is the first jointly produced QUNO Review and covers the work of both QUNO offices in New York and Geneva. It also presents other Quaker work at the United Nations.
We have worked steadily to bring Quaker peace and justice concerns to international processes, focusing on the areas of peacebuilding and armed conflict, human rights and refugees, and global economic justice.
We strive towards international law and practice that enables and empowers peaceful social, political and economic relationships. We are committed to supporting international processes that can build a safer, sustainable and more just world. This QUNO Review will show you some of the highlights and challenges of our work, and we invite you to contact us for further information.
Our work is rooted in the Quaker testimonies of peace, truth, justice, equality and simplicity. We understand peace as more than the absence of war and violence, but the need to look for what seeds of war there may be in all our social, political and economic relationships. Quakers recognise the equal worth of every person, and Quaker work strives to be an outward expression of these values, living faith through actions rather than through words.
