EUN-NET eLearning portal on EU-UN relations

This EU cooperation project of 8 universities examines the multiple relations between the European Union and the United Nations.


Welcome to the eLearning portal on EU-UN relations!

This portal is a collaboration of eight universities, funded by the European Union
The EUN-NET Network brings together established academics from different disciplines (law, economics, political science and international relations) that have a proven record of research and teaching excellence in the field of EU-UN relations. The rationale of this multidisciplinary partnership is to encourage exchange of academic best-practice and creating a thematic trans-national research group. The EUN-NET Network’s dual objective comprises the stimulation of academic interest in EU-UN interactions and the forging of a broader common public space for informed analysis and debate on current EU-UN issues.
Distance should not constitute an obstacle to learning. For this reason, the EU-UN Network has created an openly accessible E-Learning Module on EU-UN relations. This module is available to all interested students and stakeholders irrespective of their institutional and professional affiliation. The E-Learning Module is free of charge. Please note: You can change the language settings of this page one upper right hand corner!
