COPE Network Member QUNO Logo

We are a Quaker presence at the United Nations, representing Friends’ concerns for global peace and justice to the international community.


Mission Statement:

QUNO works for a peaceful, just and sustainable world by engaging with the wider UN community. In so doing, QUNO is committed to non-violent means. We undertake this work on the basis of our Quaker values.

Activities include:

  • work to strengthen the promotion and protection of human rights through the United Nations system
  • work with people in the UN, multilateral organisations, government delegations, and non-governmental organisations, to achieve changes in international standards and practice
  • raise awareness about children with parents in prison, the problems they face and possible solutions, for both children living in prison with a parent and children remaining in the community
  • develop awareness of the rights and well-being of children whose parents have been sentenced to death or executed.
