Cooperation between Uzbekistan and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was established in November 16, 1945.

The main objective of the Organization is to contribute to the consolidation of peace and security through the expansion of cooperation amongst people in the areas of education, science and culture in order to ensure universal respect for justice and the rule of law, as well as for the basic human rights and freedom enshrined in the UN Charter, for all peoples regardless of race, gender, language and religion.

UNESCO Headquarter is located in Paris.

The General Director is Audrey Azoulay (France), who was elected to this post during the 39th session of the General Conference of UNESCO in October, 2017.

UNESCO implements activities through its programs, which are aimed at the development of science, culture and education.

Uzbekistan has been the member of UNESCO since October 26, 1993.

The UNESCO Office in the Republic of Uzbekistan has been operating since April 23, 1996.

Uzbekistan is actively involved in the activities of UNESCO. Uzbekistan was twice elected to the Executive Council of UNESCO in 1997-2001 and 2009-2013.
