Specialized Agencies

Five specialized agencies are simulated in the game: the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Each agency generates money and focus like a country, the elected director country can assign those as it sees fit in order to achieve its aim. This budget will refresh yearly and behaves in almost all ways like a countries budget other than it cannot accrue debt.

The heads of agencies are elected by and among the player-countries in the UN via majority vote. Those elected play as both their country and as the head of an agency. A single player-country cannot lead multiple agencies. The vote takes place in the GA and does not pass to the Security Council.

The heads are as follows:

UNESCO = Vacant
WHO = Vacant
FAO = Vacant
ILO = Vacant
UNHCR (Refugees) = Vacant
UNCHR (Human Rights) = Vacant (7 members will be elected.)

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization its declared purpose is to contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through educational, scientific, and cultural reforms in order to increase universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights along with fundamental freedom proclaimed in the United Nations Charter.

In addition to its budget the head of UNESCO is able to condemn countries for their approach to matters under its purview, an example for this would be discrimination in education against people on the grounds of race or gender.


The World Health Organisation is concerned with international public health. It is focused upon the tasks of coordinating world efforts to improve healthcare and upon responding to health crises that may occur across the world.


The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is a specialised agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.


The International Labour Organization is a United Nations agency dealing with labour problems, particularly international labour standards, social protection, and work opportunities for all.


The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is a United Nations programme mandated to protect and support refugees at the request of a government or the UN itself and assists in their voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement to a third country.


The UNCHR operates slightly differently in that it does not have a budget or focus, it can launch investigations into nations to produce a report on the human rights situation in that country, once that is completed the members will be presented with its findings. They may then choose to condemn the country. If they do so the country suffers repercussions and the matter is referred to the General Assembly for debate and possible further sanctions.

The UNCHR can have up to two ongoing investigations at any time.

The United Nations Commission on Human Rights consists of 7 members (one each representing North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.) elected by members of the General Assembly. In the first such election held in game all seven members are elected. The same country cannot serve two consecutive terms.

All votes in the UNCHR require at least 5 out of 7 of its members to be in favor.
