Blue Smoke is an initiative led by the United Nations Association – UK, Plataforma CIPÓ and a consultant at Strategy for Humanity to promote greater accountability and transparency within the United Nations, especially with regards to elections and appointments to senior positions within the organisation.

The Blue Smoke project conducts research, advocacy and communications activities to achieve its goal of ensuring that appointments to senior roles at the UN are inclusive, democratic, merit-based, transparent, and subject to scrutiny. This is essential for the credibility and effectiveness of UN leaders, and by extension, the UN.

Blue Smoke also calls attention to the inequalities that persist across leadership positions to ensure that qualified candidates are not excluded from consideration based on nationality, gender, or race.

The Blue Smoke newsletter is a joint project coordinated by the Blue Smoke project and delivered in media partnership with PassBlue
