Let's find out which duty stations / what types of duty stations are most appealing to all of us. I listed a few options in the poll. Let me know if I should add options.

Thanks for voting!

To me it has to be Bangkok - I love Asia and I think the UN is really needed in the region: there is everything from climate change impacts to migration and other development challenges.

I voted for Bangkok (which is not my duty station!), but what’s missing from the list is Vienna.

I'd go with Bangkok as well since Vienna is missing. New York, Copenhagen, and Geneva are all known for being expensive cities to live in. Even with the UN compensation package, I doubt it would make much difference. On the other hand, both Bangkok and Nairobi are quite reasonable when it comes to living expenses (I guess Vienna also?).
