Mission readiness is a long-term process. It begins from the moment you consider mission service with the United Nations, continues throughout the duration of your assignment and even extends beyond, as you reintegrate into your previous lifestyle. A whole host of issues is involved, from mundane organizational matters to complex emotional problems which may arise from your mission experiences. It is this process which we seek to address within the following pages. Anyone going on mission service is advised to attend a “Mission Readiness” seminar, one of the ways in which the Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) aims to prepare staff for an assignment. This booklet has been designed primarily for use in conjunction with such seminars, but it also provides valuable information for those who are unable to attend.
