In view of the ever increasing imperative of recognizion and management of linguistic, cultural and other forms of diversity within the international policy arena and the global agenda, TermNet expands its cooperation with organizations in this field. It has therefore become an organizational Member of the Academic Council of the United Nations System (ACUNS) in early 2010.

ACUNS is a professional association of educational and research institutions, individual scholars, teachers, and practitioners active in the work and study of multilateral relations, global governance, and international cooperation. ACUNS focusses special attention on the programs and agencies of the United Nations system and other intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations that play a role in managing common problems on the global agenda.

The Annual Meeting 2010 will take place in Vienna from 3-5 June with the motto „New Security Challenges“. TermNet, in cooperation with the UN Studies Association, organizes a free 3-day workshop on „Diversity and Global Understanding“ (31 May – 2 June) in cooperation and as an pre-conference event to this Annual Meeting.
