Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations


This summer, I had the privilege of representing my country, Pakistan, as a Junior Adviser at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City under the supervision of Deputy Permanent Representative Nabeel Munir and Ms. Saima Syed. As a government organization, the Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations in accordance with the UN Charter, actively works with the international community to promote and maintain international peace and security, both as a member of the Security Council and through its contribution to UN Peacekeeping. During my internship, I participated in discussions and negotiations at the United Nations on a host of issues including human rights, peace building, anti-terrorism, development, climate change, and international law. My internship provided a unique insight to my International Relations major as I understood the motivations and interests that guide every state in global policy.
