The UN Academy is the first extracurricular educational programme in Croatia centred exclusively on the UN system and UN-related topics as well as specific areas of UN’s concern such as peace and security.
Judging by the response of applicants and the success of the first edition of the UN Academy, it remains certain that the Croatian United Nations Association will continue to work on this project. with the selfless assistance of its members, and representatives of the diplomatic and academic community.
We would like to use this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the UN Academy – the Institute for International Relations, the U.S. Embassy in Croatia, lecturers, private donors and our members.
on behalf of the Croatian United Nations Association
