Human Security and Human Rights Division

The Human Security and Human Rights Division facilitates UNESCO’s work on issues such as governance, democratic institutions, citizenship, freedom of expression, representation of young women and men, and their active participation in decision-making processes, in socio-economic and cultural development.

It also contributes to UNESCO’s work on the fight against racism and discrimination through research, normative instruments and operational programmes and projects.

Further, it aims to increase awareness and knowledge on human rights and human rights-based programming. UNESCO cooperates closely with other bodies, programmes and specialized agencies of the UN system, drawing inspiration from their experiences.
