The EUN-NET Network activities will revolve around three axes:
(a) Education: the coordination of activities to promote the exchange of teaching and training best-practices. Such activities will comprise the gathering of supporting materials and articulation of a comprehensive curriculum for EU-UN studies; the editing of a state-of-the-art Handbook on EU-UN relations; the development of complementary teaching methodologies (classroom simulations); teaching exchange visits among the partners of the Network; an (open) electronic webinar on the EU-UN system for a wider audience of interested learners and stakeholders; and training sessions addressed to stakeholders and civil society.
(b) Research: the organization of an academic research workshop to share academic knowledge and cutting-edge research on the EU-UN interactions. The Network will also deliver a data set on EU activities within the UN setting compiling data on oral interventions and voting records of EU member-states in the different fora under the UN aegis. This data set together with the Handbook will be invaluable assets for researchers.
(c) Dissemination of knowledge: the organization of public events engaging national and EU policy-makers as well as civil society actors. The culmination of these activities will be a large-scale public event held in Brussels at the end of the three-year period to discuss research findings and stimulate public interest. Other dissemination activities will comprise the set-up of an EU-UN Observatory as part of the Network’s website that will function as a data repository and provide support for research and teaching on EU-UN relations.
