Overview[edit | edit source]
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations established on November 16, 1945. Its main objective is to contribute to peace, security and common welfare in the world by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science, culture and communication in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms.
UNESCO supports the development of ICT-based content services (e.g. broadcasting) in developing countries and has championed the adoption of content-oriented perspectives in international ICT decisionmaking.
