New ways to use knowledge in the UN system

Last June, the Centre for International Studies co-convened the Symposium From “learning lessons” to strategic planning: new ways to use knowledge in the UN system, bringing together current and former UN and government officials and analysts from think tanks and universities.

The Symposium highlighted major challenges facing those working for or with the UN in the peace-and-security, development and humanitarian fields. It identified specific knowledge deficits and defective internal processes in all three of those fields, addressed the role of new technologies, and produced several concrete recommendations for future action.
