RAUN 2018-19 Innovations for Development: Towards Peaceful, Sustainable and Inclusive Societies


The Regional Academy on the United Nations (RAUN) is an international, multidisciplinary education initiative that brings together United Nations' Agencies and outstanding students who, in the course of nine months and as part of small teams, attend lectures and interactive workshops and conduct hands-on research projects of relevance for the Agencies. RAUN's aim is to provide participants with in-depth knowledge and resources about the UN and their functions, to raise their cultural awareness and openness, and to offer a forum for networking and academic exchange. Since its creation in 2012, RAUN has trained over 200 young scholars from more than 40 nationalities.

Currently, we are inviting applications for the 2018-2019 RAUN academic year. The program will start in May this year and will deal with the theme: "Innovations for Development: Towards Peaceful, Sustainable, and Inclusive Societies". The deadline for applications is 31 March 2018. I am contacting you to kindly ask whether you could forward the attached call for applications to the students of your university/faculty/department and publish it on your website (if possible). I have also attached to this email a flyer introducing our program for your information and distribution.

RAUN is a non-profit organization operated entirely by volunteers. Except of a service charge of 50€, we do not charge participants any fees and we offer scholarships for those students who are otherwise not able to finance their participation.

You can find more information about our program on our website. Besides, we have created two video clips to give students a first impression of our program: An image spot ( and one answering the frequently asked questions about the Academy (
