To help inform solutions to pressing global problems, the PCUN develops statements offering an evidence-based position on a range of issue relevant to the UN and its constituents. Each statement draws from psychology-related research and intervention strategies to expand readers’ understanding of complex issues, providing culturally sensitive positions and recommendations based on accepted findings from the science of psychology.
