The 2014 ACUNS Vienna Annual Conference will take a closer look at the evolution of UN policies over the past decades. Before an audience of experts, academics, and students, the Vienna-based UN agencies will present the changes of their policies and priorities in response to new understandings of issues they deal with, as well as the external environment. The aim is to shed light not only on the evolution of policies, but also to examine how new directions are decided upon and to evaluate how effectively existing challenges are being met. The Conference is hosted by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and will be organized in cooperation with IAEA, CTBTO, UNCITRAL, UNHCR, UNIDO and UNIS. On the third day of the conference the closing session of the 2nd academic year of the Regional Academy on the UN (RAUN) will take place.
