The summer school provides an introduction to the work of the United Nations, as seen through the programmes of the Quaker United Nations Office.

Emphasis is given to formal and informal discussion sessions so that the 25 summer school participants can gain in-depth understanding of the issues at stake and the dynamics that shape work on these issues.

A variety of learning techniques are employed, including lectures, small group discussions, role plays and workshops.


Please send your completed application and reference forms to Helen Bradford

Participation in the summer school is not limited to Quakers, although they form the majority of participants. We welcome applications from all nationalities and faith backgrounds.

No formal qualifications are necessary, but an active interest in international affairs is needed, as well as the desire to share understanding with others. English is the working language used throughout the programme, therefore good English is essential for those taking part.

Closing date for applications: 15 March 2017
