LOOKING BACK AND PEERING FORWARD
A SHORT HISTORY OF THE UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC COMMISSION FOR EUROPE
This is an account of the United Nations Economic Commission of Europe (UNECE), its evolution over six decades and its significant, but often unsung, contributions to European cooperation. This is not a comprehensive history. Instead, the authors have tried to provide a broad overview of the main strands of the story, spending more time on those moments and activities that they think have played an important part in shaping the culture and the character of the institution.
This book was published in 2007, to commemorate UNECE’s sixtieth anniversary.
