Become a part of the General Awareness that helps in raising disarmament issues among next generations through the Global Disarmament Essay Competition!
The UN Secretary-General’s “Securing our Common Future: An Agenda for Disarmament”, highlighted that while the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development took an important step towards articulating how arms control, peace, and security contribute to development”, there is a lot that remains to be done “in order to bring the historical relationship between disarmament and development back to the forefront of international consciousness”.
The best essays will be awarded the following prizes:
The top essay writer will be offered the opportunity to be a non-residential Young Leader Fellow at UNIDIR. The Young Leader Fellow will work with a UNIDIR expert during a week-long paid trip to Geneva to prepare and deliver a presentation, based on their winning essay, during an awards ceremony at the UN HQ in Geneva.
The second and third-place essay writers will be offered the opportunity to be a non-residential Young Leader Fellow at UNIDIR.

Also, the five-best essays will be published online as part of UNIDIR’s series of Youth Commentaries, which will be promoted in a dedicated section on its website, through social media and UNIDIR’s research networks.
