Free online courses on public policy by the United Nations (EN, FR, ES, PT, Arabic)

The UN System Staff College (UNSSC) is committed to innovative learning and training programmes focused on public policy.

It offers a range of courses either online, face-to-face, or a combination of both, and has campuses in Turin and Bonn.

There are programmes on sustainable development, peace and security, as well as leadership and management. The online programmes are offered in several languages – a current selection brings up French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic, as well as English.

To see what is available, click here, and then choose “Target Audience” > Everyone, scroll down and set the “Price” slider bar to zero (or another figure), and your selection will appear. You can also use other filters such as subject and language.


Hat tip to Nathalie Reis for making me aware of these excellent resources, especially on sustainability.
