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.
