UNESCO | Education - UNESCO Institutes and Centres specialized in education
Six Institutes and two Centers work as part of UNESCO’s Education Sector, helping countries to tackling education problems. Located in different parts of the world, the Institutes and Centres all have a different story to tell. Three Institutes have a long past; the oldest - the International Bureau of Education - dates back to 1925. Others are more recent, mainly established in the late 1990s in response to emerging needs. The institutes and centers are:
-- International Bureau of Education (IBE)
-- International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP)
-- UNESCO Institute for Education (UIE)
-- Institute for Information Technologies in Education (IITE)
-- International Institute for Capacity-Building in Africa (IICBA)
-- International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (IESALC)
-- International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (UNESCO-UNEVOC)
-- European Centre for Higher Education (UNESCO-CEPES)
There is also a UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS).
A brochure available on this website describes the work of each of them.
