Standard-setting in UNESCO


Standard-setting represents one of the main constitutional functions of UNESCO and an important tool for realizing the goals for which the Organization was created. In addition to conventions and recommendations, the declarations adopted by the General Conference promulgate principles and norms intended to inspire the action of Member States in specific fields of activity.

The first of a two-volume work on Standard-setting in UNESCO contains the essays presented at a symposium held on the occasion of its sixtieth anniversary. Topics addressed in Normative Action in Education, Science and Culture include methods of elaboration and implementation; constitutional objectives and legal commitments; international collaboration; and impact.

The second volume collects the complete texts of all UNESCO instruments. Part I of this volume contains conventions and agreements adopted by the General Conference and by intergovernmental conferences convened by UNESCO itself or jointly by UNESCO and other international organizations. Part II includes the recommendations issued by the General Conference, while Part III features all UNESCO declarations.

Together, these two volumes compose an invaluable commentary and reference work that should be of interest to scholars, practitioners, diplomats, policy-makers and students of international organizations.
