In an increasingly globalised world, we need to work with other countries who share our common interests on issues such as peace and security, trade and economic development. Our membership of international organisations like the United Nations and the European Union gives us a voice in the international community and allows us to promote and protect Ireland’s interests abroad.
Vienna is one of the most important headquarters of international organisations. Beside New York and Geneva, Vienna is the third headquarters of the Secretariat of the United Nations.
The Vienna International Centre also plays host to the Secretariats of the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation.
The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is also based in Vienna. Ireland is represented in this forum by the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the OSCE.
The Permanent Mission of Ireland represents Ireland in the International Organisations in Vienna, promoting Ireland’s International Priorities.
