Legal Assistance


Legal assistance is available to any person contractually linked with UNESCO, at Headquarters and in the Field. Besides staff members, diverse categories of temporary staff (consultants, supernumeraries, etc.) as well as interns can benefit from it.


STU proposes legal assistance for any problem UNESCO staff members may encounter in their professional environment, from informal conflict resolution in partnership with the Mediators and the Ethics Office, to assistance with lodging appeals to the UNESCO Appeals Board and ILO Administrative Tribunal.


To get assistance, you may come directly to STU (Fontenoy Building, offices F.007 and F.008) or contact the Secretariat by e-mail:
