UNIC Reference Assistant Ms. Nazanin Ghaemmaghami-Farahani, who conducted the workshop said: “Students learned about some basic facts about the UN, and how to find and retrieve UN information on the UNIC, UN in Iran and the UN websites as well as UN Careers.”

She added: “They also learned to locate information on international law through three different UN webpage gateways namely “Uphold International Law” among “What We Do”; “International Law and Justice” among “Global Issues” and “International Law Documentation” in the “Research Guides” of the Dag Hammarskjold Library (DHL).”
