1. Our Work:
The Center for United Nations Constitutional Research (CUNCR) is a not-for- profit independent think-tank with the primary mission of providing research and policy recommendations concerning the United Nations Charter and structure in the direction its constitutionalisation. Our work aims to contextualize today’s debates and literature on global governance and its problems, such as the environment, wars and conflicts, extreme poverty, human rights violations, conventional and nuclear disarmament, into workable solutions for our interdependent global community. Specifically, we envision the creation of a rights-based UN, where people are represented alongside the states, and where our rights, such as the right to clean environment, right to elect our representatives, and our human rights, are recognized globally. Our goal is to reform the existing international law and global system, where the power lies with “We the Peoples”, as specified by the UN Charter, through a transformed United Nations.
2. Our Vision:
Every day, vulnerable populations around the world are affected by climate, conflict, and coercion. The root of these causes is the inadequate way global decisions are made. The present framework for the international community to resolve contemporary issues is based on the UN Charter, which, when put to the test, has failed to avert famine, halt armed conflicts, or bring about a more democratic world. At CUNCR, we believe the time has come to create a better world. While our methods are legalistic, the outcomes are tangible: a truly democratic world parliament that includes a system of representation for the people of the world. The abolition of nuclear weapons. Real action on climate change. In short, we are interested in securing real, meaningful human rights, for all human beings.
3. The Task:
We envision a logo that symbolizes global citizens by signifying democracy, constitutional reform, and the United Nations in a simple yet powerful design. The color scheme should include UN and democratic colors, prominently a variation of light blue or teal.
4. The Audience:
The target audience includes a wide spectrum of human rights defenders of all ages, ranging from government officials to youth activists, all over the world. To this end, we are looking for a logo that balances classic and contemporary, compounding sophisticated and bold styles into a unified design. Overall, a high impact design that is distinct, and not overly similar to the logos of other non-profit organizations.
