United Nations System: or how to govern international relations

The headquarters of the UN is in New York. This is where the Secretary General is and the General Assembly and the Security Council sit. The other three major UN centres are in Geneva, Vienna and Nairobi. The United Nations Office in Geneva (UNOG) is the office that represents the Secretary-General in Geneva. A Mecca of multilateral diplomacy, UNOG provides conference services for more than 11,000 meetings a year, making it one of the world's most active conference centres. About two-thirds of United Nations system activities take place in Geneva. With 10,000 United Nations staff stationed, Geneva is the city where the United Nations is the most represented in the world!
