Abstract : The mandate of the UN University is, among other, 'disseminating knowledge' through 'networks' which would by 'dynamic interaction' contribute to the growth of vigorous academic communities in the Third World. In its first five years from 1975 to 1980 the UN University has been organised into an operational institution with an extensive, international system of 19 problem-oriented networks of scholars and institutions engaged in research, advanced training and dissemination of knowledge, as stated in the UNU Council Report for 1979-1980. The group of experts who met at UN University headquarters in early 1977 to consider the University's appropriate role in the dissemination of knowledge characterised the problems if faced.
