In addition to individuals, ACUNS provides for institutional memberships. For ACUNS, institutional members signal connection and credibility as it approaches governments, foundations and other organizations with new proposals for funding, program support, and other forms of cooperation. In this way, institutional memberships bolster the organization and the services it provides to its members.
ACUNS institutional members include university departments and centers, think tanks and research institutes, nongovernmental organizations, private businesses, and other organizations interested in advancing scholarship and dialogue about the UN and issues of international concern.
The benefits of becoming an ACUNS institutional member as well as the process for joining the organization are listed below. As of January 2021 and the establishment of ACUNS as an independent nonprofit organization, memberships extend for one year starting from the date the necessary fees are paid. In addition, membership rates have been completely revised and are now based on the location of the headquarters of the institution registering for membership.
We invite you to join the ACUNS community of scholars and practitioners by completing the necessary institutional registration form accessible via the button below. Please note that the individual who will submit the institutional registration must be willing and able to serve as the “Primary Representative” of the institution to ACUNS.
Institutional members are able to provide individual memberships to five representatives of their organization, including one “Primary Representative” and up to four “Standard Representatives.” In addition, the institution receives one print copy of every Global Governance journal published during its membership year. All representatives of the institutional member obtain all of the benefits associated with individual membership.
More generally, ACUNS ensures that its institutional members receive priority when opportunities arise to organize events or develop new programming. ACUNS institutional members are considered first as potential hosts for the location of the Annual Meeting and Annual Workshop, Global Governance editorial hosting, co-hosting and participating in activities of the new Global Governance Innovation Network (GGIN), or any other new program or event. ACUNS also promotes its institutional members to the UN sabbatical leave program, and whenever UN bodies contact ACUNS with special requests for assistance or expert insight.
Membership Registration and Rates
In order to register for institutional membership, an individual at the relevant institution must be designated as a “Primary Representative” and create an initial institutional profile by completing the necessary institutional registration form. The initial form will create a private profile for the representative and the institution that will only be visible to trained ACUNS staff.
Once the form is completed and membership fees have been paid, the Primary Representative will receive a “discount code” that they will be able to provide to four individuals at their institution who will then be able to register as individual members and “Standard Representatives” of their institution. As part of the individual membership registration process, individuals are asked to indicate if they are representatives of an institution, and then to provide the discount code given to them by their institutional Primary Representative, which will waive any fees.
The institutional membership fee rates are indicated in the table below. Institutional members can only register for memberships valid for one year starting from the date when the respective fees have been paid. All fees indicated in the table are in United States dollars (USD).
If the headquarters of the institution registering for membership are located in one of the following 34 countries, the institution must pay the higher membership fee: Australia; Austria; Belgium; Canada; Czechia; Denmark; Estonia; Finland; France; Germany Greece; Hungary; Iceland; Ireland; Israel; Italy; Japan; Latvia; Lithuania; Luxembourg; Netherlands; New Zealand; Norway; Poland; Portugal; Slovakia; Slovenia; South Korea; Spain; Sweden; Switzerland; Turkey; United Kingdom; United States.
