What is this glossary about?
Totally updated for today’s fast-paced world, this new and unique English-French glossary includes 12,000 words and expressions and covers all the challenges of today’s world: climate change, emergencies, humanitarian help, law, politics, military, terrorism, new technologies, etc. It will definitely be very useful to anyone involved in international affairs, working for a UN organization, a peacekeeping operation, an international court, the ICRC or NGOS, as well as translators, speechwriters, editors, interns and students.
Even if multitudes of sources for specialized vocabulary can nowadays be found on the internet, it is difficult, and time consuming, to find and use them, and to be sure that they are updated, which is rarely the case.
This glossary is easy to consult and user-friendly. It has been compiled, from her knowledge, experience and intense research, by Annick Stevenson, a journalist who served for more than 25 years as an editor and Senior Information Officer in several United Nations duty stations, and as a Spokesperson for the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva.
This glossary is available in two different formats: a paperback version, and an eBook version (pdf). With the purchase of the paper version, you will receive the eBook for free.
