    At the request of the Norwegian foreign ministry, the Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Centre (NOREF) has commissioned UNU-CPR to research and write a paper on the current position, role, and legitimacy of the UN in East Asia. The analysis will focus especially on possibilities and proposals for reform of the UN system in the broad fields of peacebuilding and conflict resolution, as envisioned by countries in the region. The report will also include a section identifying and briefly describing those institutions and individuals in the region with proven expertise on and interest in the topic.
