The United Nations University (UNU) was established in 1973 by the United Nations General Assembly with a mission is to contribute, through research and capacity building, to efforts to resolve the pressing global problems that are the concern of the United Nations, its Peoples and Member States. UNU's efforts are divided into two major themes (Peace and Governance, and Environment and Sustainable Development) and serves as an international community of scholars; a bridge between the UN and the academic community; a think-tank for the UN system; and a builder of capacities, particularly in developing countries. The UNU implements its activities through a network of 13 research and training centres distributed across the globe. In 2002, the UNU set up an Online Learning unit and one year later established the UNU Media Studio in Tokyo responsible for the development of online courses, e-case studies and other elearning products.
