FEPS ‘UNited for’ conferences, have been held since 2018 in New York ahead of the United Nations General Assembly. The main objective of this yearly initiative is to discuss, with international high-level policymakers, experts and academics, the most important international issues at stake. Speakers in these conferences included influential political and academic figures such as Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, EU VP High Representative Josep Borrell, former German Minister Heiko Maas, former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinsons, and Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State, as well as the Special envoys of the UN Secretary-General for each of the above conference topics. FEPS counts with the Special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the highest status given by the UN to non-governmental organisations, thus allowing it to participate in the work of the UN.
