UN in your language

Residence Palace, UNRIC Entrance

The United Nations Regional Information Centre (UNRIC) is organized into nine geographical & thematic desks and an Info Point & Library. UNRIC works with all stake holders in Europe - the European Union institutions, governments, all segments of the civil society and of course the media. UNRIC aims to inform but also to engage Europeans in issues of global reach.

The Info Point & Library maintains a small reference collection and provides reference services via e-mail and phone, as well as information materials in various languages.
The UNRIC website is operational in 13 languages of the region: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. 

Additional information on the work of the United Nations can be found in our Links section and Info Point & Library.
