Quaker United Nations Office

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

QUNO staff work with people in the UN, multilateral organisations, government delegations, and non-governmental organisations, to achieve changes in international standards and practice. Quakers are known for speaking out against injustice and war – issues that are incompatible with our vision of a world in which peace and justice prevail.

Quaker’s work is rooted in the Quaker testimonies of peace, truth, justice, equality, and simplicity. They understand peace as more than the absence of war and violence, recognizing the need to look for what seeds of war there may be in all our social, political, and economic relationships.
