The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up in 1947, by ECOSOC as one of five regional commissions of the United Nations and transfers regularly its records to the UN Geneva Archives. Most of UNECE records are not restricted and therefore our clients may have full access to them.
These records contain file and documents related to the major aims of UNECE namely promoting pan-European economic integration and facilitating sustainable development and economic cooperation among its members. They include records related to policy dialogue, negotiation of international legal instruments, development of regulations and norms, standards and conventions to facilitate international cooperation within and outside the region, exchange and application of best practices as well as economic and technical expertise, and technical cooperation for countries with economies in transition as well as cooperation with other global players and key stakeholders, notably the business community.
At present, UNECE files and records are not available online. Therefore, we advise our clients to contact an archivist to be provided with more detailed practical information on how to access these files.
