UK Government Deployee Guide: Working in United Nations Missions

profile greg wilson Dr. Gregory Wilson, Governance and Public Sector Management

Dr. Gregory Wilson recently supported the UK Stabilisation Unit in preparing a Guide for first time staff and consultants being deployed by the SU to work in UN missions. The Paper provides practical advice on how best to prepare for such a deployment – how to function comfortably and maximize the effectiveness and contribution of staff within an often complex and unique environment. It covers a wide variety of issues including the structure and organization of the UN system, mission organisation, tasks and personnel issues – while providing a coherent introduction to working on integrated political missions, including in Country Team offices and UN agencies such as UNDP.
