The Voice of Which People?

The Voice of Which People? Transnational Advocacy Networks and Governance Networks at the United Nations (City University Working Papers on Transnational Politics, CUTP010, January 2013), on the difference between advocacy networks, whose members share basic values and campaign for common goals, and governance networks, whose members have different values and who are united solely on the question of claiming participation rights in an intergovernmental institution   -   click here

Information on Consultative Status for NGOs with the UN Economic and Social Council.

Different Versions of the United Nations Statute for NGOs

The NGO Statute specifies the conditions for NGOs to be recognised by the Committee on Non-Governmental Organisations of ECOSOC and the participation rights they gain once they obtain consultative status. The basic relationship was specified in 1946. The term, “Statute” was first used in 1950, when the previous resolutions and practice were consolidated into a single resolution. In 1968 and again 1993-1996, the NGO Committee undertook a substantial review of the Statute. Despite much debate, relatively minor changes were made in the second and third versions of the Statute.

The List of NGOs in Consultative Status with ECOSOC

New lists of accredited NGOs have been published each year, to consolidate the changes made by ECOSOC in their mid-year session. These lists are issued in the E/yyyy/INF.x series of documents, where E/… signifies it is a document of the Economic and Social Council, yyyy is the year in which was (or should have been) published and x is just the number in the series for that year.
    The lists have sometimes appeared after a long delay. The September 2012 list was not published until April 2013, but the September 2013 list did appear in October 2013. Old lists are not directly available from the ECOSOC websites, so this web page is the only easy way to make comparisons across the years. Where available, the HTM files provided here have been prepared by Peter Willetts by copy-editing the UN documents.
