Grants to Security Council Report

  • $1,000,000

    2017 (Duration 2 years)

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Security Council Report (SCR) was established in 2005 by the MacArthur Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation with additional support from the  governments of Canada and Norway. Founded on the belief that lack of balanced, high quality, publicly-available information about the activities of the UN Security Council (Council) is a barrier to the effective performance of the Council and a handicap for UN member states, NGOs and other stakeholders, SCR is now the leading voice on Council matters and its publications and website are the go-to sources for information and analysis on the Council. General operating support permits SCR to provide meticulously documented information and analysis to Council members to improve their capacity to participate effectively, and to others, including the media, to promote transparency and accountability for Council action or failure to act.
