Das Unwort des Jahres 2017 „Alternative Fakten“ steht für die Legitimierung nicht belegbarer Aussagen im öffentlichen Diskurs. Emotionen statt Fakten sind in den letzten Jahren vermehrt Diskussionsgegenstand und Grundlage politischer Entscheidungen geworden.
The United Nations (UN) is a highly complex organisation. It can be difficult for civil society advocates to know where to start and the best way to exert any influence. This toolkit will help civil society organisations (CSOs) and other stakeholders to navigate the politics and structure of the UN system and its main decision-making bodies. It will also provide a roadmap to help guide CSOs through the main types of UN agreements and how they are negotiated, with a focus on financing for development and global economic governance, in particular relating to debt issues.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are ambitious objectives: not only do they call for an end to poverty and hunger, they also recognise the need to fight inequality, including gender inequality, protect the environment, provide decent work, ensure sustainable consumption and production and achieve global peace. Unlike the Millennium Development Goals that preceded them, they apply equally to all nations.
