Ethics: UNESCO

Download the UNESCO Ethics webpage:

"Since its creation immediately after the Second World War, UNESCO has been designated the conscience of the United Nations," and this is reflected in UNESCO's ethics programs. UNESCO’s Programme on the Ethics of Science and Technology aims to place scientific and technological progress in "a context of ethical reflection rooted in the cultural, legal, philosophical and religious heritage of the various human communities."

The Program includes the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology (COMEST). It deals with areas such as ethics of the environment, the Precautionary Principle, ethics of outer space, science ethics and the teaching of ethics.

Through its Bioethics Program, UNESCO addresses the ethical, legal and social concerns stemming from advances in the life sciences, particularly in genetics. Through the Program, UNESCO supports the International Bioethics Committee and the Intergovernmental Bioethics Committee, the only international bodies that address bioethics issues. The Program’s first major success was the adoption in 1997 by the General Conference of the Universal Declaration on the Human Genome and Human Rights, subsequently endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1998.

UNESCO: Opportunities Upon US Reentry

The following is a summary provided by Sid Passman of the meeting held on February 19th:

The subject session was attended by about 60 people including a number of AU Directors and several NatComm members, a number of senior people such as the NSF Director (who promised me he would personally follow UNESCO affairs), and Nobelist Leon Lederman, who was probably the oldest person there, but told me he regretted the lack of young participants.!

Speakers included welcome from AAAS' Shere Abbott, Introductions by Barrett Ripin (State),

Amb. Oliver gave an excellent talk about the US interests and UNESCO, followed by ADG Erdelen, who gave a thorough PPT talk covering the entirety of the program, with the details of the Science Sector program. He mentioned a number of US co-efforts and said that the DG would sign an agreement with NASA in Wash. on the 1 March (after his Georgetown U. visit) He thanked the Amb. and her team support for the capacity building review (including the Eng. Community).

Shirley Malcom (AAAS) reviewed Education and her contributions to UNESCO in SciEd. She said she has known Pete Smith for many years and thought he would be a good DG/Ed.

Bruce Alberts, Pres. NAS , covered the Academies' related international interests including assistance to African institutions for science based public service. He gave advice to UNESCO on helping developing country institutions and capacity building, but fell short of offering any direct support.

Terry Garcia (Nat'l. Geographic Society) gave a very graphic review of the Cultural imperatives such as culyural diversity, preservation of languages, heritage (tangible and intangible) and the role of modern technologies in support of preservation.

A discussion period was introduced by Lily Schuermann and led by Rita Colwell, who expressed her own longterm interests in UNESCO programs in the life sciences and microbiology. The discussion was lively and showed the real interest of all for a greater US participation in UNESCO programs, support of the NatComm and its role, and the availability of extra-budgetary supprt (people and resources).

The discussions were followed by a very generous reception which encouraged further discussions.

All in all it was an excellent event and I complimented Dr. Ripin for his organization of the session.

"A treaty to protect the world’s oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, craftsmanship and knowledge of nature is on track to enter into force next year following a slew of new ratifications, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said today.

"UNESCO to Stop US Cultural Imperialism"


The headline of this Turkish newspaper article on the Cultural Diversity Convention illustrates just how controversial the Convention has become.

"The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) two years ago initiated studies to preserve cultural diversity in the world. UNESCO has been preparing to take steps to protect endangered cultural diversity with the introduction of an international convention. Experts gathering at UNESCO's head office in Paris have been discussing details of the final draft of the Convention for the Protection of the Diversity of Cultural Contents and Artistic Expression...........

"UNESCO's 190 members are now in split over the discussions about the Convention draft. Countries led by France and Canada who make up the majority demand a regulation enshrining cultural diversity in a legally binding convention to be given to governments in order to protect their national culture against free-trade competition and, if required, to adopt a protectionist approach. The US, on the other hand, claims along with a few other countries that cultures can best develop in a free-market context and objects to crucial parts of the draft. Japan, which has a great share of the world's cartoon market, and India, which promotes its HBollywood made films to the world, support the US, while Latin American and African countries are in agreement with France and Canada. Speaking to Zaman regarding the draft, Turkey's UNESCO representative Ambassador Numan Hazar noted yesterday that Turkey also adopts theFrench and Canadian line, which is supported by the European Commission, and favors, if necessary, the implementation of protectionist policies in order to preserve cultural values."

A Global Culture War Pits Protectionists Against Free Traders

The New York Times article: Registration required

"Since October 2003, Unesco's 190 members have been working on what is provisionally called the Convention on the Protection of the Diversity of Cultural Contents and Artistic Expression. It is intended to be approved by consensus this fall, but don't count on it. There is still no agreement on its final name.

"But that is a minor issue compared with more fundamental differences. Led by France and Canada, a majority of countries are asserting the right of governments to safeguard, promote and even protect their cultures from outside competition. Opposing them, a smaller group led by the United States argues that cultural diversity can best flourish in the freedom of the globalized economy."
