The Augustinians have been represented at the United Nations for a number of years. We have been granted ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council) consultative status in May this year. With this upgrade in our status we are able to designate official representatives to the UN offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna. We are able to submit written and oral reports directly to the ECOSOC Council, to be called upon by the Council for expert advice and to make use of certain services of the Council. We will be required to report on our activities as an NGO quadrennially. We congratulate P. Emeka Obiezu OSA and the team that worked on attaining this recognition for the Order.
