We have three different areas of activities:

The first is to provide, on short notice and at the request of the catholic representatives, high quality expertise on specific topics currently under review at the UN.
◦ Proximity to the needs of Ambassadors and Catholic representatives at the UN.
◦ A trusted network of highly qualified institutions and professionals.
◦ A functioning network of associates, able to deliver an expert report within 3 weeks
Our second field of activity is to commission reports from highly respected research institutes on topics deemed by the foundation as crucial to the ongoing international debate. Selected each year by the Board of the foundation, they also are intended to be relevant to current international events and forthcoming activities at the UN.
◦ Topics relevant to international politics and in line with the agenda of the UN.
◦ Capacity to pre-empt future dialogue.
◦ Capacity to propose solutions.
◦ Implementation and coordination among Catholic representatives through closed seminars at the UN.
◦ Distribution of reports through the Caritas in Veritate Working Papers
Our third field of activity consists of preparing 'side events' at the UN done at the request of Catholic representatives, in order to give visibility and relevance to these topics at the UN.
◦ Ensures a wider coverage of the positions taken by Catholic representatives.
◦ Gives the opportunity to develop the understanding of the Catholic position on a specific point.
◦ Gives Catholic representatives the possibility of bringing to Geneva world class experts to present or explain our position.
