Since 2016, the IRU has renewed and restarted its neglected positions in international institutions such as the renewal of the ECOSOC status at the UN, and the opening of its own UN offices in New York, Vienna and Geneva, as well as open and transparent cooperation with European institutions - EP, EC, Council of Europe, etc.
