About Us

The official magazine of international civil servants of the United Nations at Geneva

UN Today is the leading magazine on issues of concern to staff of UN agencies in Geneva. By and for international civil servants, it brings to staff, diplomats, and the wider international Geneva community an introspective analysis of what affects our life and work in Geneva and how to make the best of it.

Carrying on the legacy of UN Special since 1949 to the defining pandemic of 2020 and beyond

At the heart of international Geneva

Housed at the Palais des Nations, the staff of the United Nations in Geneva has been serving multilateral diplomacy for almost a century, supporting more than 8,000 meetings every year, at one of the busiest conference centres in the world. We are more than 9,500 staff, and are the face of the biggest UN duty station outside of United Nations headquarters in New York. We work everyday hand in hand with a large range of stakeholders to maintain international peace and security, to advance disarmament, to protect and promote human rights, to eradicate poverty, and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. We welcome you to learn more about us.
