United Nations Information Centres

Europe and the CIS

Established in 2004, the Brussels-based United Nations Regional Information Centre (UNRIC) serves most of Western Europe and operates in 13 languages: Danish, Dutch/Flemish, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

The United Nations Information Service (UNIS) at the UN Office in Geneva serves Switzerland and coordinates with other Geneva-based UN offices to inform the world about the role of the UN system in addressing international concerns.

The United Nations Information Service (UNIS) in Vienna is responsible for the public relations work of the UN offices based in that city and serves Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia.

United Nations Information Centres elsewhere in Europe include UNICs Ankara, Bucharest, Moscow, Prague and Warsaw.

Since 1992, information components, supported by the UN Department of Global Communications, have also been established in UN offices based in Yerevan (Armenia), Baku (Azerbaijan), Minsk (Belarus), Tbilisi (Georgia), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Kyiv (Ukraine) and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).
