13 Feb 2019 - The United Nations Dispute Tribunal (UNDT) Vacancy Announcement

  • Published in Other

The United Nations (UN) is seeking judges for its internal system of administration of justice that addresses employment-related disputes.

The internal justice system includes a first instance United Nations Dispute Tribunal (UNDT) and an appellate instance United Nations Appeals Tribunal (UNAT).

The UNDT sits in New York, Geneva and Nairobi and is comprised of three full-time judges and six half-time judges. The full-time and half-time judges serve for non-renewable seven-year terms.

The UNAT is comprised of seven judges, who also serve for a fixed non-renewable seven-year term, and its seat is in New York.

The UN is presently undertaking a selection process to fill four half-time judicial positions in the UNDT.

Half-time judges work for up to six months in a calendar year in New York, Geneva or Nairobi. Half-time judges may not be deployed in a particular year or may be deployed less than a cumulative period of six months a year if their deployment is not justified by the UNDT’s caseload.

The President of the UNDT decides whether and where to deploy a half-time judge, including whether to make use of telecommuting in their deployment.

Mandatory qualifications for judges of the UNDT:

  1. All persons applying to serve as a judge of the UNDT must be of high moral character and impartial. 
  1. Candidates must have at least 10 years of judicial experience (i.e. experience as a judge or equivalent) in the field of administrative law, or the equivalent (e.g., employment law, law applicable to civil servants, civil litigation) within one or more national jurisdictions. 
  1. English and French are the working languages of the United Nations. All candidates must be fluent, both orally and in writing, in English or French in order to conduct judicial proceedings, and draft decisions or judicial orders in either of the two languages.

A current or former judge of UNAT is ineligible to serve in the UNDT.


Interested candidates are invited to apply by completing the prescribed application form in either English or French. The prescribed form is available at 2

10 Feb 2019 - United to Reform

  • Published in Other

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has made proposals to reform the United Nations since the beginning of his term in January 2017. To improve the delivery of our mandate, the United Nations is making sweeping changes in the following areas:

Development. The 2030 Agenda will require bold changes to the UN development system for the emergence of a new generation of country teams, centred on a strategic UN Development Assistance Framework and led by an impartial, independent and empowered resident coordinator.

Management. A new management paradigm for the Secretariat and a United Nations that empowers managers and staff, simplifies processes, increases transparency and improves on the delivery of our mandates.

Peace and Security. The overarching goals of the reform are to prioritize prevention and sustaining peace; enhance the effectiveness and coherence of peacekeeping operations and special political missions and move towards a single, integrated peace and security pillar.
