New arrivals

New expanded editions of two ABCs are now available:

The ABC Switzerland-UN explains the UN institutions and bodies, key terms in United Nations vocabulary and provides an overview of Switzerland's UN policy by keyword.

The ABC of Human Rights presents essential human rights concepts in a glossary of keywords arranged in alphabetical order. In addition it provides an overview of the history, development and application of human rights as well as the current status of the debate.

The other publications in the FDFA's ABC series are of course also still available, in the handy A5 format, online and free of charge at > ABC Series.
