Global Partnerships

UNIDIR has a diverse network of partner institutions around the globe, including research institutes, universities, think tanks, foundations, UN and UN affiliated organisations, NGOs and intergovernmental organisations.

UNIDIR Fellows and Senior Fellows

UNIDIR Fellowships and Senior Fellowships bring to the Institute experts whose work enhances our conversations and research. We seek out a diversity of experts who can enrich the intellectual life of the Institute with new perspectives and ideas on critical arms control and disarmament challenges.
