The United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) is pleased to announce an Open House Webinar on 6 March for the Integrated Analysis for Sustaining Peace course.

The webinar will be hosted by our programme team and expert faculty members, providing a deeper look into the content of the self-thematic modules, the live webinars and the on-the-job guided practice.

Effective communication is a key element of the work of the United Nations and international organizations at large. Every day, the UN is called to take decisions whose impact will affect the lives of millions of people who are the direct beneficiaries of our collective work, as international civil servants. The Secretary-General himself has placed the primacy of politics and analysis at the centre of his agenda and as a guiding principle of any of the UN initiatives on sustaining peace. Analysis at the UN is often conducted for various audiences and purposes and with the ultimate goal of taking decisions that will “do no harm” and also ensure the greatest impact to its beneficiaries. Written analysis is one of the most complex and yet most important tools to influence policy making. By combining analytical methodologies, webinars and tutored writing exercises, this course will boost the ability of participants to capture, analyse and report on the most sensitive information required for decision-making using the appropriate drafting techniques and stylistic conventions.
