The United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe (UNRIC) is located in Brussels, the capital of Europe. Its mission is to communicate the values, history and mandate of the United Nations and its actions in building a more peaceful, fair and sustainable world.
UNRIC represents the UN’s Department of Global Communications in Western Europe and engages with partners, civil society, media, public institutions, the academic community, the private sector, think thanks and the creative community.
UNRIC also provides support to United Nations agencies located in Brussels and works together with the European Union institutions.
The Centre covers 22 countries* and works in 13 languages. We provide fact sheets and communication materials, collaborate with partners in organising events, help arrange Model United Nations (MUN) and answer questions on subjects concerning the United Nations and its public awareness campaigns.
