The Department of Global Communications Civil Society Unit is responsible for facilitating the United Nations' engagement with civil society. This happens through the exchange of information and the development of partnerships that enhance this interaction and provide civil society with a deeper understanding of the work of the United Nations. Felipe Queipo, Communications Officer at the Civil Society Unit, provides more insight and information on how this partnership works.

How does the United Nations define civil society? What's the difference between NGOs and CSOs and why does the Unit make this distinction?
