(1) Courses on the United Nations system and its functioning, including briefings for new delegates on the General Assembly and its Main Committees, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the topic of UN reform; a briefing for new members of the Security Council; as well as workshops on UN elections and documentation.
(2) Seminars on international law and policy, including on challenges and developments in treaty law, international migration and development, international trade, environmental governance, and peace and justice issues.
