Students learned about some basic facts about the UN, and how to find and retrieve UN information on the UNIC, and the UN websites as well as Dag Hammarskjold Library (DHL) page on the web. Overview and searching through some of DHL resources and databases including UNBISNETOfficial Document System (ODS) and introducing UN document symbols were among the programme of the workshop.  

There was a focus on International Court of Justice (ICJ), International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), Treaty Collection and UN Audiovisual Library of International Law as well as the Security Council and International Law, General Assembly and International Law including the International Law Commission.   The participants learnt how to locate a multilateral treaty, its status and the related reservations.
