At its inception, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), was founded to provide delegates of newly independent states with the skills and knowledge to perform successfully in multilateral settings. Over the past 60 years, the Institute has developed unparalleled expertise in training diplomatic staff to accomplish their duties and to meet contemporary challenges facing the international community.  

The mission of UNITAR is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge, and tools to be able to address and solve contemporary complex global issues. The Institute is committed to strengthening this endeavour and enhancing its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals. Thus, in recent years, the Institute has expanded its training offerings, and partnered with centres of excellence to launch Executive Education and Master's Degrees available to the wider public.  

UNITAR is pleased to launch the second edition of its  Open Day: UNITAR Programmes in Diplomacy and International Law. This free event will showcase UNITAR's Master's Programmes, Executive Education, Training, and Immersion Programmes. Participants will be able to directly engage with UNITAR staff and resource persons to ask any questions they might have regarding UNITAR's programmes, and learn more about how these programmes address issues ranging from international affairs to international law, diplomacy, development, human rights, anti-corruption, the cyberspace, science diplomacy, diplomatic practice, and business leadership.
