GlobalMemo.org is the only comprehensive online resource on the selection of senior global leadership in the United Nations system.

Our team aims to provide authoritative updates on nearly a dozen senior multilateral posts or intergovernmental bodies each year, all with their own processes and rules, politics and quirks. We cover the the candidates, the procedures and the key decision-makers involved in each selection. In many of our reviews, we touch on the history of a selection process, noting its development as part of emerging best practices in the UN system.

Donations make it possible to continue and expand this coverage and to offer the best reporting on global leadership selection possible.

If you support informed discussions on transparency and accountability on the candidates for senior multilateral posts, we welcome your financial contribution.
