The idea of international solidarity at UNESCO is dwingling

Vilakazi Fikile Mabel


UNESCO’s role to building solidarity, peace and security internationally seems to be threatened and weakened. In 1946, UNESCO made a social contract to use culture, education and science as a tool for buiding international solidarity, peace and security. Its trajectory presents challenges related to voice, representation, power and hegemony which often result in conflict in most parts of the globe. For instance, the recent acceptance of Palestine to UNESCO has increased tensions amongst states because of Palestine’s positioning in global peace processes. This research surfaces some of these challenges and recomends further research on how to ensure the independents of UNESCO in fulfilling its mandate.

Key words: Palestine, UNESCO, International solidarity, Peace, Security
