Activity summary:

The Quaker UN office in Geneva is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to work on peace and justice issues. It represents Friends around the world, is sponsored by Friends World Committee for Consultation, and is supported by American Friends Service Committee, Quaker Peace and Service, Quaker Meetings and individuals in many countries.
The Quaker House serves as meeting place for informal, off-the-record discussions for delegates and secretarial staff. In these meetings, particularly contentious issues blocking important UN work can be considered in informal dialogue and solutions sought in an atmosphere less encumbered by official positions.
