United Nations Association of Hungary
The United Nations Association of Hungary (UNA-H) is a national movement for the support of the United Nations (UN). It is the Hungarian member organization of the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA).
Inspired by the first words of the Charter of the UN „We the Peoples….”, one year after the establishment of the UN, the WFUNA came to existence in 1946. Nowadays its membership consists of more than 100 national UN Associations. Initiated by the leaders of WFUNA, the UNA-H was established in 1947. Since then it has been functioning practically without interruption. Its statutes have been reviewed and reformed in 1989 and according to the new Hungarian Act on the Right of Associations it has been incorporated as an “Association Serving Public Interests”.
The sole purpose of the UNA-H is to promote the realization of the goals and ideals laid down in the UN Charter. Among others disseminates information about the activities of the entire UN-system. It is the only non-governmental organization in Hungary which encourages and supports the international cooperation in the framework of the UN-system in the areas of peace and security, economic and social development, human rights, international law and humanitarian action. The UNA-H offers you insights into what the UN is and how it works, as well as a channel through which you can join with people to become engaged in the critical global issues affecting us all.
