What is the ACUNS Summer Workshop?

The Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) and the United Nations Secretariat jointly sponsor this Workshop each year to enhance professional development in international organization studies and encourage new directions in international organization research. Participants are expected to present a research paper of publishable quality in the workshop. 

The 2022 workshop will be hosted at University College London (UCL) in the United Kingdom from 5 – 11 June 2022. It will be directed by Dr. Inken von Borzyskowski, Associate Professor at UCL, and Dr. Charlotte Ku, ACUNS Past President and Professor at Texas A&M University, on the theme The Role of International Cooperation in Tackling Inequalities.

The workshop will bring together 10 United Nations staff members and 10 early career academic researchers or practitioners from other international organizations or governments for knowledge exchange, networking, and mentoring.
