United Nations Video TV Library

IAED has been volunteering (charatible) since 1994 the video taping of Meetings, Committees, Conferences, PrepComs and many other activities at the United Nations. Hundreds of videotapes have been given to the United Nations Department of Public Information's DPI/NGO Resource Center, Ambassadors at the various Missions to the United Nations, and to all of the Heads of the United Nations Departments, Country Ministers, along with many other individuals.

Nearly every issue the United Nations focuses on has been recorded (and updated yearly). There now exists a library of thousands of hours.

We are working on the database to list here all the hundreds of tapes available. Keep your eyes on this location. See UN Videotape Library.

Please note that the United Nations also as a magnificent collection of official UN (government) videotapes that are also available. Contact the NGO/DPI Resource Library at the United Nations. Also note: The UN (as of the new SG Kofi Annan's administration 7/30/99) has stopped videotaping inside the UN. This UN administration (SG-Kofi Annan) is in a Censorship mode. Never-the-less, we are still videotaping key UN issues and UN Ambassadors weekly and TV Broadcasting with simultaneous Webcasting (videostreaming).

*** As a result of the current censorship at the UN we are looking for contributors to set up a Library of video tapes outside of the United Nations. If you can help, please contact us directly at IAED Administrator.

IAED volunteered this service since 1994, and at no cost to the United Nations for the following reasons:

  1. To preserve the extremely valuable work (history) of the United Nations meetings and discussions.
  2. To record the NGOs contribution to the work of the United Nations.
  3. To save the United Nations the cost of doing this, because the United States Government refused to pay its agreed to and legal responsibility of assessed dues to the United Nations; In an attempt to cripple the UN during the 1990's and force the UN to bring in the corporations.
  4. To make available the information the NGOs and other civil society members need to be able to address and possibly contribute to some of the world's great problems.
  5. In the hope that corporations (who benefit the most from the UN) will help solve some of these major global problems.
  6. To provide a unique and "rare source" of information for Graduate Students of Political Science and International Business.
