The United Nations Handbook 2011–2012 is now available

United Nations Handbook 2011-12

Now in its 50th year of publication, the United Nations Handbook remains the only comprehensive printed guide to the United Nations system and how it works.  The handbook summarises all United Nations organisations and provides essential information about their aims, structures and membership.

This unique publication is widely used by those working in the United Nations system, from diplomats on the negotiating floor to international civil servants and non-governmental organisations.  It is also an invaluable resource for journalists, business, libraries, academics, schools, and members of the public.

The handbook is published by New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  It symbolises New Zealand’s long-standing and practical commitment to the United Nations.

The handbook is available for purchase in two formats: in CD (P800) and book form (P1100).  If you wish to purchase a copy of the handbook, please provide your contact details along with your order by email to or fax to (+63) 2 891 5357.  You will be contacted on when to come to the embassy for payment and pick-up.
