Snakes And Ladders
A Personal Exploration Of Quaker Work On Human Rights At The United Nations
BY RACHEL BRETT
The Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO) in Geneva enables Quaker concerns to be heard at an international level, while its quiet processes help informal but crucial talks to be held. In this book, Quaker human rights lawyer Rachel Brett outlines what is unique about how and why Quakers work at the UN. Through personal reflections on specific work and achievements, such as outlawing the use of child soldiers and advocating for conscientious objectors and women in prison, Snakes and Ladders provides an insight into QUNO's profound and continuing effect on people's lives.
