Publications

The United Nations University disseminates its research and project-related activities through a mix of print and electronic media. UNU publications such as books, chapters in edited volumes, articles in peer-reviewed journals, policy briefs and working papers can be accessed through UNU Collections, the institution’s online publications repository.

UNU seeks to provide relevant information to the “right” audiences in the most useful forms. As such, UNU’s websites also provide a platform for research communication and expert commentary that spans a range of formats such as short-form articles, blog posts, videos and photo essays. This mixed media approach ensures that both specialist and non-specialist audiences have access to timely, relevant and easily understood research products.
